    Another one of Stan Wood's spectacular plants. This is what I call Goldilocks. There are other entries in the wiki for Goldilocks, which is what Fairchild Gardens called this croton. Any other names this goes by or anyone beg to differ? _SWW0185.JPG

    Anna, That is incredibly beautiful. Does Fairchild have this plant in the garden? Marnie

    Looks a lot like one called Yellow Joseph Fondreur. Great looking plant whatever its name.

    So is Yellow Joseph Fondeur the same plant? It is not in the wiki.

    Sure look the same to me from the pics. Note synonym for JF is Brilliantissima; so this would be a yellow Brillinatissima. Same plant whatever the name....

    Marnie, I think this plant used to be in Fairchild, but my understanding is that it was removed. Does anyone know?

    Lamar, when Peyton posted that I wondered the same thing, but he said it was a regular Zanzibar just that it had so much new growth it had so much yellow. If you look carefully, you can see there's red leaves in there under the yellow.

    Fairchild removed almost all of the crotons when they built the Museum just west of the main entrance and when I asked Mary Collins about them they had been thrown away

    I added this plant to Goldilocks, and created new pages for Yellow Brilliantissima, and Yellow Joseph Fondeur. Thanks, Stan, Phil and Lamar.
