    Hi Pix...both are PICTURATUM. FOTO #1 The large croton is PICTURATUM with Kentucky in the lower right-hand corner. FOTO #2 Why this croton morphed into red I know not. When examining up-close and behind it (very little sun) I found the several flushes, that were to me, PICTURATUM.

    Thank you, Robert. I believe I need Picturatum. I checked the encyclopedia: Phil and Scott grow them, so I can :)

    The photos posted below are in order with the narrative that appears above. Ana... we need more time to make corrections because this program sometimes has a mind of it's own and throws a photo "topsy- turvy" and by the time I make the corrections the programmed time runs out !!! I suggest one hour please ! :zombie:

    Robert, unfortunately, I don't have any control over editing time. I have a very limited number of things I can do on this forum although I have a couple more than in the other forum. I don't even know if Dean has control over editing time. It might be in the computer software? Don't know. Why don't you PM him? Maybe others feel the same way. Thanks. And thanks for the beautiful photos. Please keep adding to this thread. It is really striking to scroll down and see beautiful example after beautiful example of crotons! That Bravo is absolutely perfect. The lyratum is gorgeous! Wish I had one in my garden. The only Daysprings I've seen are in your photos and they are striking.
