    I was fortunate to visit Jim & Judy at their Keys home last week while on the International Palm Association biennial (Key West free day portion). Tim from the Audobon House & Judy piled our group of Jeff, Andrea, Me & our visitors from around the U.S. & Australia into 2 cars for the 20 minute ride to the Glock's. It looked like clown cars, with everyone exiting at the Glock's for some burgers & a tour. I ran around & took some photos before dark.

    Ron, I was thinking that might be Jackpot, but I've never seen it in person, so I'm not sure. Amazing, though, isn't it? Juuuudyyyyyy......

    No wonder it caught my eye. I remember seeing Jackpot in Jeff's collection - my begging for a rooted cutting fell on deaf ears.

    Post #3 photo #2 is Pam Kiefert coming along :cool:

    Randy, could you put the names of the ones you remember? Is that gorgeous thing in post 2 #7 a Davis 87? Wow. And #10 in post 2 is that Robert Halgrim or Three Toes?

    Anna, I'm fairly certain that #7 is Father's Day, maybe Columbiana. #10 is definitely Robert Halgrim

    Stunning CROTON specimens…thanks to the Glock’s for sharing and Randy the photographer. When “I grow up” I hope to have something similar on my mini- ranch. I’m working on it, lol :GardenLove!

    Saw a lot of crotons in Cuba. Almost every home in the country had some in their front yard. We were not able to get many photos, as the bus was going to fast.
