    Thomas Edison has been around as a cultivar for awhile. It has everything you want in a croton. Nice leaf shape, brilliant colors, hardy, easy from cuttings or to air layer and a good grower. I've have said it before - why don't we see this spectacular looking croton EVERYWHERE ??? :confused:

    Probably because it has never been put in commercial production. Should have some air layers come springtime.
