    I have no recollection of MacArthurii being discussed in any thread on this forum. It is seen on page 11 of A Codiaeum Encyclopedia Crotons of the World, by B. Frank Brown ED. D. :)

    Is anyone growing this cultivar? :confused: Is it uncommon to rarely found in cultivation? :confused:

    I've never even seen this cultivar in person. I'd say it's rare as hens teeth.

    And to find a good set of hens teeth would be nearly impossible.:) Probably like the cultivar MacArthurii. Never heard of any plants out there, and could be considered endangered if it even still does exist somewhere.

    Can it be? Not the best photos as the lens fogs over in the humid air upon me. IMG_0122.JPG pizap.com14348122952421.jpg pizap.com14348123985881.jpg

    image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg I am pretty sure this is MacArthurii I am cutting it back trying to get it to color back up. I think I got it at a sale at U S F ,Phil might know or Ron Parlett(sp) could have been the source. image.jpg

    I see why it's considered rare. It's not much of a looker.

    It's a good thing that I did not post the photo of the whole plant. :eek: pizap.com14350002166921.jpg

    BTW This is my project Croton this year. It was growing in a full shade location, moved to a full sun location in mid May. Maybe to much sun now, but I can always move it again if this location doesn't work. Time and a little TLC is needed.
