    We brought this croton back a couple of years ago from Hawaii and brought it back again this year. It's like an Orange Mona Lisa. Anyone have an ID?

    Andy,
    Your pictures look more like Don Quixote to me. Is that possible? The leaf shape on mine is true to the Mona Lisa leaf shape.

    Marie,
    You are correct it is a Don Q.
    The photos are of Johnny Sheltons, and mine is still to small to airlayer.
    I can always ask him if he has any ready for the tour if any intrest.
