    One of the best Crotons for color, but they do get very leggy, even at a small size. These are three different views of leaves from the same plant; around four feet tall overall. Midday to afternoon sun.

    This is one of my top ten choices, or favorite crotons. It has a great color pattern and large leaves. My original cuttings actually came from the old Rudy Bachman house in North Miami over 10 years ago.

    Mine came from David McLean, at the same time, who also got his at the Bachman house. We're you two on a field trip together?

    Jeff,
    I bought a large one from you last sale. I decided to plant it out. It was a large and had outgrown the 3 gal. A good wind would topple it daily. So far so good. One of my faves too. I hope a mild winter will help it along. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    Ricky, no field trip with David. Somebody else took me there. I remember it kind of being neat there, knowing this was the old house of Rudy Bachman and all the history that went with it. Rudy B., Ralph D., Richard K., Frank B. and John B,....... that was one hell of a group back then.
