Is Peles Fire a hard to find Croton?
It's another name for Picasso's Paintbrush and it's relatively common. Lowe's carries it from time to time in a 3 gallon container.
Ray, I thought I recall hearing that sometime ago, I have a P.Paintbrush. So what is the Croton in the Online Croton Reference under the name Peles Fire? It looks nothing like Picasso's Paintbrush but more like Zanzibar leaf shape. I like the look of that "Peles Fire".
Yes, do tell! Ron posted that pic without rebuttal from the board so I posted it. If it zanzibar, we need to correct it. Perhaps these potential gafs will finally get the local experts over to the wiki
Bren, I went looking for pics of my Zanzibar (RIP) from last year. I guess I never took any of it. I do remember I had a hard time with it. It would flush leaves and drop, flush and drop...and the cold finished it.
For our area, those really thin narrow leaf forms can be kept in a pot. Historically for me, those varieties tend to defoliate way before others and at temps several degrees above freezing. Just my two cents.
Separate names with a comma.
