    Looks like you should have a frozen Mango Daiquiri when you saunter through that tropical wonderland. Pompus

    I'd love to visit his garden again, now that I know a little more about crotons.;)

    Anna - It's a Christian something or other (let me see if I can find it in the Croton Encyclopedia)

    Phil - Christiana ? Hard to tell as mine has much more sun exposure than yours. If it is, I gotta move mine ... ;)

    Whoops, it's a Connie Cutler. Give me a call to make sure I'm home whenever you want to visit.

    I am thinking not Connie but Carmen Christian and a very nice older and mature one at that. The picture in the Wiki at Phil's of Cornelius looks very much like this picture.

    A few more taken this evening around sunset as a line of rain approached (and fizzled before it got here); ran out of light before I could finish.

    Beautiful Phil...I only hope that some of my Crotons will attain the size of your cultivars but as I have mentioned in the past that because of the altitude of where I live I can only wish. Keep posting those excellent photos of your gardens for our enjoyment! :)

    Phil your garden is amazing - beautiful crotons and palms, looks like heaven.

    Pixels are cheap, and since I was on the roof today to fix a small solar heater leak for the pool, here's a few more. Light cloud cover around 4pm. DSCN5706.JPG DSCN5707.JPG DSCN5708.JPG DSCN5709.JPG DSCN5710.JPG DSCN5711.JPG DSCN5712.JPG

    Phil, I don't know how I missed these yesterday! Great pics! Great combination of palms and crotons. How tall is that beautiful Fishbone? The Bravo has amazing color and markings. That's a great clone. I love seeing my garden from different perspectives. This is a lovely bird's eye view of yours. Keep taking photos!
