ID me please.....
This is a Davis, but I'm not sure of the number. I got one from Mike (Bullwinkle) and he had several different names for it. I think it's Davis #1.
I am not sure I gave you this one??It could be Island Breeze (White Ann Rutherford) but the pink under the leaves is making me think this is a new variety to me
Mike - I bought this at the silent auction at Jeff's house from you.
Davis #1 it is not for sure, no semi-oak leaf shape on Davis #1. When I first saw Allan's photos, it reminded me of the Lemon & Lime I got from Jeff Searle over three years ago. Interestingly at the same silent auction you refer to Ricky, I had an air layered plant from the one I am posting. My table was right next to Bullwinkle's but was snatched up my Carol Graf. To add to the confusion, Carol believes this to be a "Pink Flush" not Lemon & Lime.
And so it goes with these plants we love so ...
By the way - this croton is over 7 ft tall.
I remember now,I think that Ray called this one Pink Passion??
This looks just like the croton Butler and I discovered many years ago and called it Pink Passion. It's capable of producing a shade of extreame pink at times on the underside of the leaves. Definitely not Davis #1.
