    I'm kinda new with crotons, so I've been grabbing anything different I see. I'm growing a bunch of cuttings I liked, but have no clue to the IDs.These are a few I can't ID. Your proffessional help on names would be appreciated. Thanks, Randy

    Group 1 - all are very young plants, hard to be certain. But #2 could be "Andreanum" and #4 appears to be a nice pink "Piecrust".
    Group 2 - #2 is "Victoria Gold Bells" and #3 might be "Rudy Bachmann". If anyone else thinks #4 is "Dayspring", I'll agree with them.
    Group 3 - #2 is "Gloriosa", #3 is "Angel Wing"

    Randy,

    The closest thing that comes to mind is maybe, Mosaic. But, that's just a guess, as I really hate to give ID's from a picture. Just to hard.

    #3 on post 3 is Gloriosum Superbum just like the last plant at auction Saturday.
    #4 on post 3 looks like Wooten's Beauty

    #1 on post 1 looks like a nice Madam Butterfly.
