Its windy so I had to hold down the leaf to keep it still.
windy day and hoping for no freezes this year!
last ones for now
What name have you been using for the first plant, the one that looks like a Thai hybrid?
Its labelled Thai Mammey
Check it out, I inverted the colors on the Ms Roosevelt. Pretty trippy.
inverting the colors on croton photo is kinda cool. Spacey.
Green Martian Hand. (They're coming to take me away, he he, ho ho)
This looks like a surrealist painting.
DUDE, stop, you're starting to freak me out...
Okay, one more...
# 2 in the last set is a new croton called "Revolutions."
I bought that revolutions at Walmart last year. I haven't seen them since. Slow grower. Looks like ram's horn, but different.
more, a little out of focus. Early Sunday morning.
ram's horn in the mix
Last four for today. Surf's up, gotta go!
Dave, Do you know the name of the Croton in post #14 pic #2 ? Great pictures!
#14 #2 is called roostertail
Have a great day. I'm off to Playalinda. Surf is good today...
#3 in post 14 is pretty cool looking.
Central Floridave! Those pictures - wow!
Questions: in post #13, first photo - where is that place? What a sight, the spanish moss hanging from trees with a coconut so at home in the setting and the awesome red and yellow croton in the foreground - what is the croton, btw?
And post #15, the first photo - is the croton in the background batik? I can't make it out too well on this monitor. And what is the palm in the foreground on the right - looks a like a touch of lavendar, might it be purpurea or something else?
Post 14 #3 is unidentified. I think it is cool also.
#13 first photo is a view from my garage. The coconut palm is actually in my neighbors yard. I live under a oak hammock in East Central Florida. Sorry, I don't know the names of those croton.
#15, not sure on croton name, but it may be batik. It is about 6 feet tall. Its a common one so it probably isn't batik. Sorry, I haven't really kept track of croton names. The palm that has a purple crownshaft is a spindle palm. That is pie crust (hey I remembered a name) next to it.
a couple more. It got cold here the past week. Hoping for no freeze this winter!
What is the name of the croton in pic 4, post 22?
Those are some nice photos of some nice varieties. The ones in post #69 (with the black backgrounds) would be really nice on some T-Shirts. I can remove the backgrounds fairly easily (when they are nice and black like that), and if the photo had a complete "rossete" with the entire leaves within, I could offer them on shirts. You could upload the full size photos to the wiki and I could "grab" them. Then we could offer a few shirts of the nicest ones easily. What do you think?
Here is a quick example. As you can see, we would need the complete shot, without the leaves cut off.
I'll see if I can take some better shots tonight. Those were taken at night with flash.
I'm expecting near freezing temps tonight and tomorrow night. Hopefully the croton make it!
post 22 #4 is Franklin Roosevelt
