Name ideas? Found growing in heavy shade under live oaks.
and another find from same location.
#2 looks like "Baron le Compte"
#1 brings up the old "Daisy Ortegas" vs. "William Craig" debate. It could be one of the two.
Thanks Ray! These 2 and the black looking Croton came from a old home here in Citrus Park that is being torn down. I stopped by and asked the guy on the bulldozer if I could have them. There may have been more but the tear down was almost complete.
Jeez Scott, you've been making the rounds
You never know what you may find, today I was at the right place at the right time. This has made this week away from work better. I had so many chores to do in the yard this week, but as you know the weather is not working in my favor. Next week when I am back at work the weather will be great
Some nice new growth on this one in the last 3 weeks.
here it is now...
Update: Plant from post #1 & #8 putting out a spring flush and spring color.
I'd say William Craig if money were on the line.
Thanks again Ray. It looks as it will color up good this year. It must like its new home.
Looks just like the flush of leaves on my William Craig.
Scott - did you finish your croton bed along the lake yet??? Inquiring crotonheads would love to know.
Ron, I am still removing unwanted plants at this time. This area has the not so fun plants to remove. Planting this area will not happen untill May.
Still look like William Craig?
No, definitely not to me.
Nice finds - how about an updated pic on the other one....
Nothing much to show on that one. It is a slow grower and was overtaken by its Croton neighbors. I will give it a new home in the garden come spring.
Scott, those last photos have me rethinking the William Craig ID. I'm not convinced anymore.
Ray, Any ideas now?
