    The pointed leaf tip says Norma to me. I don't know if I have seen a Bonita in a very long time.

    It's a pretty croton, but I'm pretty confident it's not a Norma OR Gloriosa. But I will also state I'm not confident on a real Bonita identification.

    My guess came from page 410 in Tropica. Is gloriosum the same as gloriosa?? Pretty plant David, nicely grown!

    Could also be Rosie O'Grady.

    The first two photos look like a different plant from the rest.
