    Picked this up at local big box. Nothing in wiki based on what is labeled on croton (purposely withholding to see if there are experts matching this ID).

    I appreciate your thoughts

    It appears to be AFD#5, sold in the big box stores as "Fantasy". I thought, at first, that it might be Van Buren, but there are no spots on Van Buren.

    They are selling those down here in Key West too. In addition to the AFD#5 or Fantasy, they are selling some called Oakleafe in 7 gallon which also look quite similar to the photo.

    Thank you both for your thoughts. I will wait it out a few more days to see if anyone guesses what I think is the incorrect labeling for this croton.

    It is a nice croton for sure and is currently in the ground - hiding under some bouganvilla and Syagrus romanzoffiana over-head cover.

    I appreciate you!
