    Ron, Mango is one of my top faves. I have four and I see at least two different looks to them. I will say that the one I got from Cleo is the best of the bunch.

    I also got a 4" Mango from Jeff the same day & mine looks different than yours in post #48 :confused: go figure. This the same 4" as yours. Perfect example of same plant, different conditions. (pic taken 11/2012)

    Randy,
    Now hat's pretty! But, it doesn't have those vibrant colors all year round does it?

    Wow! Very impressive Ron. Things have really grown since we last visited the Mooseland. Maybe it's time for another look-see. Good job. Marnie

    Ron, plants are showing good color and many are really getting big! Maybe you should consider a future date for a Mooseland Croton Tour.

    Good eye Mr. King, yes it is! Kinda over shaded as the oak canopy has increased. This time of the year, the sun light is hitting it better and is starting to give it better color. :)

    Ron, your project turned out amazingly. I've had the privilege of seeing it first hand last spring, but would love to see it again. A tour sounds fantastic to me! Nudge, nudge.
