    I believe the plant on the left is Thomas Edison but what is the croton on the right? Thanks!

    Thanks Ray. I wish it still looked like this. Since this pic, it's gotten quite leggy and lost a lot of color due to the palms shading it out. I think I will pot it up and move it this weekend.

    Same thing happened with that mystery you brought me from Dolan's a year or two ago. It's still growing but looks like a totally different plant right now. I'm going to take a page from your playbook and grow a lot of these in pots so I can move them around as light conditions change.

    Bren - Do you have an updated picture of the unknown hybrid? According to the date on the photo, this picture was taken two years ago. It did not seem it was in that heavy of shade. :confused:

    Moose,

    I will try and get another shot. That bed is under heavier shade now due to palm growth. I need to move this croton to get that nice color back. It's not much to look at right now.
