This past week, my brother was finishing up on a landscape job and noticed this croton growing in a yard a few houses down. The large red leaves caught his eyes. It's a very old neighborhood and there was also 7-8 other very interesting croton types growing there too. I looked through the book and to me, it appears like a close match for a Dreer #7 on page 54. The leaves have a very, bright red and a semi oak leaf. No ripples along the side. It's extreamly attractive and would like to see what everyone else thinks.
