Found this one the other day at Publix but it had no name on it. I am thinking Noblis.
I don't think so, the back of the leaf on Noblis does not show that much color. Picture three with the middle showing back side. Onward thru Phil's fog. Happy Turkey Day........
I saw some at the publix here but they used fantasy
Scott, maybe you meant Nobilisima or Zulu. You would be correct with that ID.
Here are better photos taken today in the sunshine. Leaf size 3.5"x 1.5" with red on the undersides.
Yes I think Tim O. Hit spot on with his ID. Noblis is not a common find from a comment made by Ray.
An very old variety that may have become less popular due to all the large leaved cultivars that have been propagated.
I found this croton at a local garden center,, labeled Zulu... was the last one, so I figured the last one might have had the least color. But I believe Tims id as accurate.
Thanks for the replies! I did not realize Zulu had the red on the underside of its leaves.
