    Good eye Phil! Yes it is a Croton, but a Jamaican Croton (Graptophyllum pictum).

    some more spring growth over on the west coast of FL; 7"+ of rain the past week should speed things along too.

    Looking good Phil! Stoplight is a favorite of mine. I have 2 but they never look good. How do you get yours to look so good?

    Dappled shade or something close to it. In shade they black out; in full sun they bleach out and have smaller leaves. Something in between and they color up nicely. I'd err on the side of more light than shade.
