    irene - I have not seen "Delores" before, very nice! Fantasy may be AFD #3, I have seen it sold as Fantasy here. Your Multicolor has awesome coloring and looks way better than mine. Leola is a name unknown to me. It is hard to see with the shading from the picture.

    What beauties you have, thanks for sharing. Don't be afraid to show further croton bling! ;)

    Hi Irene,
    Your Leota may have originally come from me and my handwriting is terrible. It should be Leota not Leola. Sorry.

    hahaha! Thank you for correcting the mistake.. =) Glad to know that you are the first owner of "Leota". Your plants are doing very well here. Is "Leota" sun-loving or partial shade plant?

    Leota likes good light. When the leaves are filled with orange, it's in the right place. Full sun though is too much.

    Irene,


    That Dolores is beautiful! Nice colors and nice size leaves to boot. Eventually, that's one on my wish list to get.

    Marie, is this variety one of your own seedlings?

    Irene,
    Sweet Marie is not named after me but Anthurium Marie is. Richard Button named one of his seedlings after Dolores so if you have plants with the two labels, they are likely the same.
