    Agree with Moose,this is a sore subject.they have so many ideal croton locations and so few plants.I spent some time there last summer and I found many locations screaming for crotons.Perfect dappled light and many openings that could filled with many varieties.I have even heard of offers of free plants being refused ??

    Here's 2 I found there last year. The first was labeled "Stained Glass", I didn't see the 2nd one labeled.

    FTBG can't have it all although they're very close. When there, I prefer to look at their tropical flowering plants and palms.

    Yea, they really have no interest at this time in planting, or starting a croton collection.

    They also have a unique method combating the croton scale. :(
