kept this one caught my eye so I took when I moved large leafs
Looks like General Padgett.
Or do you mean, General Paget?
had many general pageants ,I don't believe this is one has different appearance
Im thinking green giant in a lot of sun maybe it kind of looks like from croton book.
Billy, If fawnridge says GP then it probably is ,I mean with fawnridge its either a GP or Big Red
either in need of sun or in need of shade.
I'm the wrong guy to say what it is but I have seen it and it does have huge leaf much larger than any of my general pageants and I have some over 15 foot plus tall
If these leaves are big, really big, 12"+ then it is probably a Diane. Diane gets the largest leaves of any green and yellow varieties in my yard - and upon closer examination the leaf shape looks more like a Diane than a Gen Paget. Something for scale always helps in trying to ID a plant.

Another simple-minded comment from one of the Croton "experts" that troll this forum. Once again proving that the Internet is a playground for the stupid, the ill-informed, and the lifeless lumps of human flesh that have nothing better to do with their time.
Dean - you can delete my username from this site. I'm done.
thanks, I will have to bring to andys and compare to both g p and diane I will take pics of both next to each other
The leaves on General Padget are a bit more elongated compared to Diane. Some leaves on a mature Diane can be nearly as wide as long. On Billy's plant I see some spotting, another characteristic that Diane has but not that I have noticed on General Padget. My gut feeling when I first looked at post #1 was hmmm, could be Diane. Time will tell.
I agree with the Moose on this one. My first thought was Diane. I grow both and it has more characteristics of Diane in my eyes.
