    Or something else?

    I found this in a 3 gal pot of Petra from Lowes.
    It looked obviously different from the other three plants in the pot, but now I wish I had taken a picture of the original pot before I separated them...

    Hey Norma sounds great as I didn't have that one yet :)
    and a quick google image search looks like a good match, so thanks for the ID!
    Here it is today with its old pot-mates...

    Now the other one could be Petra? Peyton, there is also a Yellow Petra that is not often encountered but it is out there with some collectors. ;)

    Yes the other one I believe is Petra.
    I also found a 'Yellow Petra' this year mixed in with all the regular Petras...
    Here's the yellow version with my official Croton Guardian, dubbed Mad Killer as a pup by my son, known affectionately as Madi...

    Norma update

    I'm real happy with how this Norma has turned out - this is the same plant pictured in the first post of this thread:

    Peyton, that's better looking than most Normas.
