    Folks,

    Can anyone help with the ID in this plant, :confused:

    I couldn't help notice the curves on the leaves.

    Thanks

    I’ve brought a very similar plant from Thailand but with red color. In Indonesia they call it - “Srilanka Daun Panjang”.

    Also have a look at “Amabile” in Dr. Frank Brown’s encyclopedia, p.66. The picture is not very sharp, but I think it’s the same mutation as in Eburneum’s. Your plant may be a white variant of this croton (without red pigment).

    That is absolutely Amabile. There is also a white form.

    I will need to check my records but believe that Angustifolium is the old name for Johannis.

    Here is an old reference (1871) for Johannis.

    Cheers
