    Here is Mrs. Iceton. This is the best it has looked since I got it. I planted it in heavy shade and it stayed pretty green for a year. I thought I just got a bad one but my patience paid off this fall when the shifting sun started doing its magic. This croton has really colored up a bland area of my garden! :cool:

    My Mrs Iceton croaked last winter & I never replaced. I love this one especially when it takes on the orangey/pink hues

    Bren, That is a easy find in the BB stores. You need to get yourself a replacement in the spring. I lost my Yellow Iceton last winter, replaced it with 2 plants this summer.

    Yeah I see it all over. Just want to replace before they get harder to find like Norma became.
