    Every bit of 10 feet tall. This one has been in the ground for eleven years from a rooted cutting. The Bismarck behind it, with Monstera growing up the trunk, went in the ground the same year from a 7-gallon can.

    The rest of the Crotons, from left to right - Gold Dust (12 of them from 6' Angel Plants around the same era), behind it, Pinocchio and Satan from Jesse Durko (9 or 10 years ago). There's Charmer right across from the Gold Dust, but it's hard to make out in this picture. At the foot of the Rheedii is Edwin T Meredith from rooted cuttings, Golden Mammay from HD, and the huge mass on the right is Twist and Point from six 3-gallon leftovers on a landscape job.

    Everything is between nine and twelve years in the ground.

    Ricky,
    You got a hell of a jungle there in the city. I always enjoy the tour at your property. Thanks.

    Rheedii is a classic and one of my favorites.
