    Norma - This croton variant was once very available in the box stores. Now it is not often encountered. My opinion is that Petra trumped it in demand so it kind of fell out in the horticultural production. It is reportedly one of the "parents" to Petra.

    Mike Harris has a nice one in his garden that is larger and has superior color than mine. You can see it next Saturday at the Croton Tour of his garden! :)
