    Found these yesterday at the H.I. store in the "Exotic Angel" area. Every Croton in the section had a label of "Laurens Rainbow" even the Petras. My Id skill tells me these are Freckles. Am I correct in this Id?

    It could be either Freckles or Pinocchio.

    Thanks, after looking at the Wiki pictures....... I think they look more like Pinocchio. I will be happy with them being Pinocchio.

    Well we finally got a true Freckles for Moose Land. It is on the smallish size and in a container. Will have to nurse it through to the Spring. Any experience as to the growth rate on this cultivar? :confused:
