    For the wiki
    Note: Very cold tolerant. This Croton is on the north side of the garden under a large tree and it rarely loses leaves.

    Let's start a controversy. Per Bob A., this is not Prince Phillip but a nice croton nonetheless.

    Prince Philip has yellow veins on agreen background. See pic in book. This looks more like the White Albicans

    Having studied the picture on page 6 and my plant up close and personal, I will stay with the name Prince Phillip, as I can see no difference between the two. Add to that, this plant came from the Decker nursery with a name tag in place.

    Yes Phil, that's Prince Phillip thanks for posting. The one in Ricky's photo could not be ID'd by Bob here last year. It looks like Albicans but the veining and leaf shape are different. BTW, please remember me when you air layer Albicans again this spring. The last one you gave me was an early casualty last Janaury.
