Discussion in 'THE CROTON SOCIETY' started by Crazy for Crotons, Oct 23, 2012.
Banner funded expressly in recognition and support of Tropiscape.
Will anyone be seeling crotons at the 2012 Fairchild Ramble?
We'll have some crotons along with our other stuff and Jose Lopez wiill be selling some crotons too. We'll be selling with the Tropical Fern & Exotic Plant Society and will be located in the Palmatum under the royal poinciana. Will you be coming over?
We'll be bringing many crotons like last year. Also, because there's no official Palm Society Sale anymore, I will be bringing palms as well and bromeliads. And other tropical goodies......
I'll be there.
Hmmmm ... Ray - perhaps when your done you can stop by the Moose Land. I'm just 8 miles due north of Fairchild.
AND well worth it!
I thought I'd list some of the crotons we'll have at the Ramble:
Capt. Gilbert Cutler
Compte de Castlaine
Madam Butterfly (two types)
Trinidad Interrupted Leaf
Twist and Turn
Remember the Ramble is Fri. - Sun. (Nov. 9 - 11) The gates open to FTBG members at 9:00 and at 9:30 to others. Hope to see you there.
Somebody...... Anybody???????? "Trinidad Interrupted Leaf" pics please
It's picture 46 in Jose Lopez's album in the Members section. Faster to direct you to that than to go take a picture. We have it from two sources - Trinidad and Hawaii but no name unfortunately.
I pulled some more crotons this morning for the Ramble:
Thank You Marie,
I never knew that section existed....... below is the link to 'Trinidad Interrupted Leaf' for anyone who might be interested...... I may have come across this plant before but really could not say, I'll be on the lookout from now on....
Between Marie and myself (sitting across from each other), were going to bring some MUCH NEEDED COLOR into the garden this weekend. We should stand out!!!
Jeff, you always brighten up the ramble with all those colorfull crotons.Looking forward to seeing the sale. Due to missing both weekends of your extravaganza because of work.
I'm heading there this morning. I'll try to get some pictures to post.
We had fun at the Ramble today and I was lucky to find my first Compte de castelaine for sale Thanks to Steve and Marie for bringing this to the sale
Forgot my camera on the dining room table yesterday - today I did not. Here we go ...
First, Louis Dupuy
The sun loving Dreadlocks
A very nicely colored Compte de Germiny
A grouping of Magnificient
A brilliantly colored Sybil Griffin
A really large Bimbo with very large leaves. What a beauty!
The Red Spider
Marie and Steve Nock's small booth was jammed with purveyors of unusual plants all day long ...
Anybody want to stir up a bit of Commotion ?
One of my absolute favorite cultivars, Tortoise Shell
And a rarely encountered Inca
The first Cornelius I've seen in person. It's a beauty that I think I need for the Moose Land.
Another rarely encountered cutivar, the Pink Davis. SWEET
Nice photos Moose! Why the eek smiley after Inca? Looks great to my eyes.
If you love bromeliads - there were amazing colorful examples for sale everywhere.
Scott - I love this croton. A well grown one has fabulous unique colors and leaf shape. The eek emotioncon was used as a SCREAM Wish Palmpedia had an expanded emotioncon selection
If you enjoy rare or unusual Staghorn Ferns - there were some available as pups. The pups kinda look the same. Here is a list of available species and prices one plant vendor had available for sale.
OK - back to more crotons ...
A Flamingo getting ready to color up for some Fall bling in the garden
I'm a sucker for the interrupted leaf type cultivars. This is a very uncommonly found Halloween. The plant is extremely healthy but could use a bit more sun exposure to bring out the orange colors.
Nice crotons, thanks for posting
Thanks for the pics Moose. I couldn't make it down this year.
Where do you find this great variety of cultivars? I'm both envious and happy for you...hang in there Moose !
I understand now.
