    It’s a young plant in the picture, a mature plant is getting more distinctive oak-shaped leaves.

    I got this cultivar about 8 years ago. The parents were – Miss Iceton (pic 1) and the yellow oak leaf (old variety) which name is unknown to me.

    Very nice Sergey!
    Is this one of your own crosses?
    The new plant is beautiful...

    Sergey, the yellow oak leaf looks like Quirko.

    Yes, below are 3 more crotons from that crossing. How different can be children of the same parents!

    There were 25 more but they didn’t seem to be interesting in my view.

    Also I’d like to get a very dark oak leaf with bright red veins from future crossing of these two cultivars. I think it’s possible.

    Thank you, Ray. Leaf shape looks very much like Quirko’s. But I see a slight difference.

    Sergey,

    An old Florida variety named Craigii also resembles your plant very closely. In Florida, Craigii may be lost. Also, do not confuse Craigii with Craigii Supreme as the two plants are different.

    It really is amazing to see the amount of variation in seedlings from the same two parents...
    Beautiful plants.

    The first one is Miss Iceton, shouldn’t be confused with Mrs Iceton.:D
    The difference is red veins ;)

    Sure looks like my Mrs. Iceton...

    I don't see red veins in your photo of Miss Iceton in post #3...

    It was a joke. A slight change in croton’s name can make big confusion.
