    Croton leaves have been categorised into nine different leaf shapes. What’s your favorite croton leaf shape?

    My favorite is the very narrow leaf, the ones that hate any cold air. My luck :mad:

    Can't believe only 8 votes casted. The results are all over the place, not what I expected. These plants truly embrace "the eye of the beholder" concept. ;)

    When my Aunt Tara visited from up north I gave her a tour of my yard. When she got to Stoplight, she said "I love this one! It looks like a big black penis!"
    However, my favorite is a large broad leaf.

    I like the narrow leaf ones. Paintbrush and Zanzibar are my favorites. But, of course I like them all. But, if I could just grow one it would be the zanzibar.

    Oak leaves are the best.

    By the way, Maculatum Katoni is semi-oak.

    I just voted for all of them except recurved leaf. Just the way it is for me. I can think of spectacular plants of all leaf shapes. Just couldn't pick one.

    I just realized there is no mention of pepperomia shaped leaves aka Thai hybrids. They are definitely problematic here and difficult to grow but there are a few that have grown fairly well for me and have maintained their shape. I have to vote for them too.

    I like them for breeding with. For me they tend to make twisted leaves.
