    Here's a good example why we can get confused with names. A pic of a plain old Gen Paget. One plant showing:
    1. 'normal' leaf color with dominant green background
    2. with a blotched top (hope this continues this spring)
    3. yellow, yellow, and more yellow!

    now imagine a pics of each and then tell someone that this is the same plant - not same species or cultivar or three of same variety - but the same plant.

    Nice pictures guys. Phil, this is a perfect example on why it's so hard to identify something from a picture, and what makes this group of plants so challenging.

    Exactly, Makes one think about the names in a collection are they right or something else. Cant win the name game with Crotons, I suppose everything needs a name Right or Wrong. These days I call them all Crotons lol
