    Scott, I love the Goldfinger and the Yellow Iceton. How much sun are they getting?

    That would be THE DOG DAYS how appropriate looking good. I like the one just before Andreanum, small oak leaf with a little pink blush. image.jpg

    ?.... ....then below the andreanum would be Roccio, candy cane, and the sunny star? Could I be right there?

    The croton above was just brought down from the mainland, word has it that it is a sport from stoplight....
    Do we have any collective thoughts on the topic? Mark

    Anna, Goldfinger receives summer sun from noon until it sets in the west. The Yellow Iceton receives a couple hours of full sun. I have another Yellow Iceton in all day sun and it has the same look.

    Lamar, That one is a spotted and blotched AFD 7. A very slow grower.

    Mark, This was purchased as Curley Boy a few years ago and it was discussed here that more than likely it is a newer name for Corkscrew. IMG_0866.JPG

    Hey Mark, my first thought when seeing that pic was "What a nice, big Gloriosa". I could most certainly be wrong though.

    Mark ...It sure does look like a Gloriosa . Cant say ive seen a sport from a stoplight like that .....

    Tim has such a good eye. I can definitely see Gloriosa there, Mark. I don't know why my font is slanted now. Drat, another thing to figure out. Thanks for the response, Scott. For some reason I thought Goldfinger preferred more shade. I killed one once, unfortunately, and attributed it to too much sun.

    Anna, I have a lot of the green and yellow color Crotons and they all look happy in sun and shade conditions. I have yet to find a green and yellow one that is picky with sun or shade conditions.

    Scott - Almost all the croton folks grow all kinds of plants. I think people put way too much pressure on themselves thinking they have to have this monster collection to host a get together. I think we look forward to any excuse to just hang out and have an auction in my opinion.
