Is this Duncan Macaw ?
Looks like the one I have that several have ID'd as Duncan McCaw; came as a cutting from somewhere in Miami; it's also defoliated the past two winters which has not helped the growth rate.
It's purdy what ever it is!
It's one of my top 10 crotons. Hmmm..time for a new thread!
Looks like it to me!!!
How about a recent photo of your plant? It has to be big and gorgeous!
BTW, there is a Yellow Duncan Macaw now in the collections. Along with a Yellow Charmer.
Rick, share that pic you recently texted, it was stunning!
Here's a couple shots of my Duncan. Cuz I am a "Croton Picker!" (Found this cutting in a trash pile in 2002.)
Why don't I find nice cuttings in trash piles like you? Good eye for spotting it !
Rick gets all of his cuttings from the trash pile. I've yet to see a trash pile of that quality in my life.
I'm wondering if this is Duncan Macaw? Moose, your plant and Rick's plant have a lot of orange and yellow. This one has deep red and pink, but the leaf shape is the same. The mother plant is at least 25 years old and growing in shade. Note the size of the leaves against my size 10 flipflops.
Not only are the colors off, but the leaf veining is too.
Jeff - Want to hazard a guess as to what it is? I don't see anything in The Book that looks like it.
