    Nellie Halgrim was not so happy when I got home. Kinda droopy from mucho heat and no rain. Now I know how Ana is feeling about her garden this summer.

    She got watered and perked up after a couple of hours.

    David =

    Davis #1 is fairly common to croton lovers, but not is not widely found as a typical landscape plant.

    C. I. Craigin is found in around my area in landscapes, but there are many homes here from the 1930's and 40's. I actually got this plant as an air layer from a church several blocks away. It was growing behind the church's marquee and the maintenance people kept hacking at it every year. A couple of discreet air layers went unnoticed. Its still there getting hacked, its progeny is larger and looks better then the source plant.

    David - this is the same C.I. Craigin planted from a one gallon container 08/12/2012. It was moved to its current location about a year ago. Much more sun which it seems to relish.

    David - that is Robert Halgrim. Its pretty darn slow and does not want to branch. I reluctantly had to take off one growing point because it had turned green and would not color up. I waited a year, then snip. The emerging bud produced the desired variegated leaves. Notice I used the singular "bud".
