    I’ll start this installment with a partial quote from the WIKI MASTER NAME AND PHOTO LIST. “There exists a controversy regarding this croton. Some think Satan and Irene Kingsley are the same cultivar with two different names …”

    In addition to file photos 41 thru 45 I am attaching photos, 46-47-48 of what I’ve found in my wanderings thru-out Costa Rica Re: Irene Kingsley vs. Satan. Photo #46: IRENE KINGSLEY - (traditional leaf), #47: SATAN (trident shaped leaf form) and #48: both aforesaid leaves on the same cultivar, Satan in the top half & Irene Kingsley below.

    I am by no means trying to continue or start a squabble, just sharing a few pics of this handsome but quirky cultivar in the Costa Rican Landscape. :)
