    First of all I want to thank everyone who has answered all my questions about culture.

    One of my last purchases was labeled yellow wizard but is really King of Siam.

    Thanks Moose.
    How fast does this grow ? Just morning light or can it handle more sun ?

    Thanks in advance

    If you are refering to my post made earlier today, that is not in my garden. :mad: It is growing on the west side of the building in pretty heavy shade. A cutting will be in my garden very soon though! :rolleyes:

    Ron. :eek:

    King of Siam to me is a moderate grower, like most crotons. Mine in the yard gets all morning sun and does great. But, I think it still can tolerate more sun and still look good. Actually, I have grown these in pots at the nursery in practically full sun, and they still look just as good.

    Jeff, the red spotted one (whatever the name) grows more slowly for me than the pink.

    Lot of Nurserys call it White or Yellow Wizard, I even heard of a few IDers call it that also. Go Figure:rolleyes:
