    Wow, that has a remarkable resemblance to Puccini.

    Pretty Croton. Bring it here and it'll be dead in a year. Putting the words "nice" and "thai croton" together in the same sentence means the plant is still in Thailand.

    John Criswick brought me a cutting of this croton a year and a half ago and it's doing beautifully. Nice big leaves. I'll try to post a picture of it tomorrow.

    Every named croton deserves a place in the wiki. If it's your seedling then name it and put it in the wiki. Any croton that's given out needs a name if only to identify it "down the road". Actually, that sounds like a pretty good name.

    That's a very nice croton indeed! I've know John for 20 years now, and what a great plantsman he is. I always wish and hope that someday I can travel to Grenada to visit with him and his garden. Thanks for sharing.
