    Wow - I have one that looks very simular to your "Reliance". I will post a picture tomorrow and see if you think mine may be a "Reliance".

    Thanks for posting the picture Scott! :p

    There's an enormous bed of "Reliance" by one of the buildings at FAU. Must be 50 or 75 plants!

    Could this be "Reliance" ? Grown in full sun. *:confused:

    Ron, How is your "Reliance" doing. Did it color up? Mine went to the Croton Garden in the sky this Winter.

    Scott - Mine is doing great. It even has an air layer that is ready on it right now. It's yours if you want. I can pot it up and have it ready if you make it to Jeff Searle's sale. If you don't and Ray does, perhaps I can give it to him and you guys can hook up out west. ;)

    Scott - here are some updated photos taken this morning. It has a very large air layer with your name on it if you so desire. ;)


    A bonus: although there is a Twist and Point planted very close to this, I have never seen croton scale on this cultivar. That does not mean it is not succeptable to the scale, I just have not seen it. It did get treated with Malice when I treated all the others. The scale seems to prefer certain cultivars more than others. I believe in a heavy infestation it would have moved to this one eventually. Just my theory. :rolleyes:
