    Recently Tim posted on some of George's hybrids, some of which originated over 10 years ago. Because Jerry Schilling inspired me to try hybridizing, I was curious about George's success, so I started asking him questions. I'm a little out of the loop being up north here, so I didn't realize Geoge has a nursery and grows commercially. He sent me a few cell phone photos to show his croton seedlings and I was impressed to say the least! He said it would be ok if I shared them with all of you.

    Nice, huh? Lastly, I wanted to show the results of his hybridizing. Many of you have seen the beautiful Lyanna Rose, which was named after his daughter. Below is a mass planting of this croton from cuttings. Of course, he had to find an equally worthy cultivar to name for his son, Tristan. Here it is below the Lyannas:
