Nice croton bed featuring Black Beauty. I didn't know what it was at the time.
Jeff, the plant in the middle is what Johnny was calling Rapture. There are a few growing (and surviving) here in my neighborhood. Per Johnny, it's mislabeled Dreer #7 in the book.
What a BLAST of color...another way of displaying CROTONS for public enjoyment. This is what I call CROTON SALADS...they look good enough to eat !
In my opinion, we do not need Bob Alonzo to solve this mystery. That is definitely not the same cultivar that Jeff has named Red Foot!
Croton salad is a great description of Ray's pictures. Brillant!
Thanks for the pics Ray! You just gave me an idea.
As I stated in the other topic on Rapture, it's good to finally clear this up. And what a great find seeing Black Beauty growing down there in Mexico of all places.
Let's make sure Bob Alonzo concurs with our findings tomorrow. He and Johnny are amazing at this but don't always agree.
Who knows if BB is still there after Wilma. Those shots were taken in April 2005.
Well, if their not down in Cozumel anymore, their certainly going to make a comeback throughout Florida. I'm bringing 3 plants to the meeting from some of the cuttings Ron got me.
Thanks to Ray's croton eye, we were able to identify this rarity. I had no clue what it was as a beginner - without Ray, this may have been another lost cultivar. this thread has some very nice crotons, thanks for posting the pictures Ray!
