    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?

    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 .... pizap.com14416565370281.jpg

    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. pizap.com14416590067931.jpg

    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. pizap.com14418221267081.jpg pizap.com14418222117371.jpg pizap.com14418222651811.jpg pizap.com14418220650771.jpg

    I thought Colombiana also.

    Phil, Father's day is more orangy, but similar leaf shape.
