    This "Purple Eburneum" was acquired about 4 years ago from a Extravaganza sale. Since there is no known cultivar known as Purple Eburneum, it has to be a Pink Eburneum.

    You can see there are some lavender and mauve hues on this plant. Lavender and mauve are derivations of the color purple. Don't you need a blue pigmentation mixed with red to achieve purple? Could this be the only croton cultivar that has any blue pigmentation? Blue is a color never found on any known cultivar.

    Curious what others opinions are ... Cyclops

    Ron, it definitely has a lot of purple, though. Beautiful colors. This is one unique plant that's so easy to identify. Thank-you, Lord.
