One of the "White" Crotons.
Very nice croton! I've got one very similar that came with the name White Albicans - as a cutting from David McLean at the meeting some years ago at Dr. Brown's home. See first and second pics (taken tonight).
The next two pics show what I've been calling Prince Philip. See also pic on page 6 of Dr. Brown's book - unusual yellow veins with a few spots. Do not recall where this plant came from.
Regardless of the names, they are both nice crotons and not readily found.
Onward through the fog....
Your Prince Phillip came from Johnny Shelton at a USF sale several years ago. There were a couple of plants there. I think Perry has the other one. Don't ask me how I remember that.
Albicans is a white sport from Veitchii.
Phil - My plant also came from a David McLean cutting, but he said it was Prince Philip. Do I sense another Croton controversy brewing or is Professor McLean juggling names?
Is David McLean coming to the Holiday get together at the Glock's?
Well, he made an RSVP to Ricky's, but never showed up. Ft Myers? Who knows, but I wish he was more involved.
Separate names with a comma.
