Definitely resembles King of Siam. Nice looking plant there Scott.
It's so close up I can't tell for sure, Scott, but isn't it King of Siam?
Haha, we were both looking and typing at the same time, Tim! Slow around these parts.
King of Siam - this one shows some nice pink dots/spots on back sides of leaves.
Thanks all! I was thinking K o S, it has been so long since I have seen one with colors. I guess I will trash the 2 I have in the ground. Not so close up photo ....
Here is a shot of what I have been calling King of Siam, color appears on older leaves only. These show no twisting to the leaves and are a extremely fast grower.
Forget this! I just remembered that I purchased this one as K. o S. but was Eleanor Roosevelt. have
Some of the King of Siams have flat leaves that are the same size as the normal ones , the usual greens and pinks and purples . Lots of variations
Here is another Croton that I never put a name tag on because I never saw it as what I was told it may be. Leaves measure 11" L x 5"w. Plant gets hit with morning sun and filtered sun in the afternoon hours.
My first thought is Columbiana.
Hate to be a copycat, but that's what I thought also. Needs more sun to develop it's wild colors, Scott.
Was thinking Scarecrow or Fathers Day
I thought Colombiana also.
Phil, Father's day is more orangy, but similar leaf shape.
