    Phil, I was doing a little Cordyline research and found the Crotons. I thought the Croton Heads would enjoy the illustrations. I need now to restock the ink in my color printer and print the pictures.

    Anyone know if the Gigantea Rosea is still around? With another name perhaps?

    I know this has been discussed before. It was mentioned prior that "WTF" could possibly be Strawberry. Based on the description, some said no. Only a black & white photo was found in Exotica. Now Scott has dug up this illustrated colored print of Strawberry. Based upon Scott's finding, perhaps the discussion may be worthy of being reopened? :)

    Moose, I am really really bad at the ID thing.IMO I do not think "WTF" looks like Strawberry.
