    Here's one I got out of his yard. Leaves are 8" in the largest to maybe 4 1/2' in the smallest. Some of the oldest leaves have a pinkish blush, barely noticeable on top but obvious on the underside. Just dug it out of the yard and repotted it.

    Oh, the point is, he didn't throw them all out or give them away.

    I have that exact same Croton from seed in at least 6 different places in the garden. Very common seedling. Does it have a name?

    I have been digging out plants that have not been thriving recently,hopefully the change will get them healthy.

    Are you saying he should have thrown it away? It was part of his plantings. Maybe it was just a common seedling that grew after he was gone. Still I like it.

    Nice plant! Anyway this variety has already become a part of history and should be kept for the future.

    Chris - I see the simularity to the unknown I got from Ray we were checking out at today in the Moose Land. ;)

    That sucker sure is slow!

    Speaking of Trinidad - could this be the infamous Trinidad Interuptum?
