    Seen quite a few gardens and croton collections. I do not recall ever seeing this cultivar anywhere except in pictures. :( Is anyone on this forum growing Ishi ? :confused:

    This is one where I'd like to hear about the name's origin. I've never seen the plant, a photo or a book reference.

    Thanks Keith. Besides a recent calendar, is this plant in an old book or old Dreer magazine somehwere? I'd like some history on this one.

    Ray - on page 13 last photo of the current Croton Sociey Newsletter, there is a photo of Ishi. Curious if this is an old photo or a current one? :confused: Hopefully this is still being cultivated.

    " ... is this plant in an old book or old Dreer magazine somehwere? I'd like some history on this one." Ray - you may need to ask Lee about this one. :)

    Ray - I found a photo of Ishi on page 12 of the March 2009 Croton Society Newsletter. It is found in Carol Graff's article WHAT'S IN A NAME?. Perhaps if you contact Cookie, she could relay some information on this cultivar? :)
