    This is one of the Holy Grail crotons in my opinion. Based on the fact that the supply has not met the demand of the collectors who want it. They are getting planted and established in more and more gardens so the availability will increase and eventually won't be considered rare. It caught my eye the first time I ever saw one. :cool:

    Milky Way is a beautiful croton Moose. It takes a lot of light and is a good grower too.

    Ooops, this one is fairly shaded. Mostly filtered light until about 2 pm - then it has a window of getting direct sun for an hour then back into full shading conditions. Of course in the summer the sun exposue will be longer. Hmmm, I planted this trying to replicate the conditions that Searle had his in. I'm not gonna dig it up and move it, it should acclimate.
