    This croton originated from the Mary Hayward Garden. It came to me through Bob Alonzo and he was pretty sure that this is it, but not 100%. Looking in the book for comparison, it's close or similar, but would like to know from others what you think. Czar Alexander is pretty rare and not very commonly seen.

    I was bidding on one supposedly at the recent croton meeting, and won, but i was sadden to find out later from Bob Alonzo that it most likely wasn't Czar Alexander, but just some other croton :(

    very nice!

    I was bidding on that croton, you still got a great deal because you hardly ever
    see that croton.

    Rob,

    I remember that cutting. I personally didn't think much of it and thought at the moment it didn't look like anything close to this plant of mine. Can you post a picture of it maybe just so others can see it and offer their thoughts? Also to compare w/ the picture in the book. Thanks, and no hurry.:)
