    Could someone please post a photo of Daisy Ortegas. In Dr. Brown's book, it may be mislabeled William Craig.

    Ricky,

    Sorry to say, but from the meeting this weekend, this croton would not be Daisy Ortegas.

    That's semi oak Ricky. I'd say neither.

    For Marie Nock - as we walked back and forth today looking at the diffences as suspected - see Rays comments. The Daisy Ortega in the book looks like a William Craig. And what has been going around as William Craig is in fact a Daisy Ortega. That would coincide with the ID's on your plants. I am happy I have both and is just a matter of switching tags.

    Anyone else please chime in! :rolleyes:

    Ron. :)

    Definitely not Van Buren. I grow Van Buren. I'll revisit this post in the Spring when the Crotons don't look as bad.
