    #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.

    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 :mad:

    I'd say William Craig if money were on the line.

    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.

    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.
