    Mercer is a croton that was developed by the University of Hawaii a number of years ago. Another orange beauty!

    Is this the one you said you grew before but wasn't very cold hardy? Sure is nice.

    Ron,
    I just moved 9 Mercers out of the mist house this week. I'll hold one for you.

    Knock on wood, my Mercer has never had a problem with cold temps. It survived the 2010 freeze without complete defoliation.
