    Heaven - this one is situated where it gets pretty good amounts of afternnoon sun. I would consider this one to be one of the more sun tolerant variants in my opinion. The orange coloration in this one I feel is reamarkable. :)

    Two large cuttings were taken from this plant in February. It has shapened up nicely from the "pinches". An airlayer is now needed. As the season progresses, it will get more shade and the vibrant orange colors will manifest I believe. ;)

    Scott - one air layer is promised here on the east coast. The other is heading to the west coast but is already spoken for. If they do not show up for the meeting then it will go to the auction at Phil's. :)

    That is all the air layers that will be on this croton this year.

    Here are some shots I took tonight. There is a heavy flushing of new leaves. Starting to develope its orange colors. :cool:

    I cannot believe with all the air layers Jeff did this Summer that he missed putting a couple on his Heaven cultivar! :rolleyes:

    An air layered plant from my mommy Heaven will be making its way to the auction table this Saturday. ;)
