    Picked up some new croton from a recent sale.

    Sorry haven't posted in a long time but been busy.

    New names that I'm googling now are:

    Nestor, Aztec Warbonnet, Buddy, and Wootens Beauty.

    Picked up at Melbourne F.I.T. plant sale from Peters croton.

    The only one that google don't know is Aztec Warbonnet. Is this new or under a different name?

    Dave, you gotta help us out here and post a pic of this croton. Peter's stuff is usually pretty small to start, but will grow in time. It is possible that this could be a seedling that he threw a name on, but let's see the plant!

    Here are photos of the 4 new ones. Unfortunately I mixed the tags up and now don't know which is which.

    I can see a Nestor and a potential Buddy there. Wooten's Beauty is a bit in doubt. As for the 4th, never heard of dat one. :confused:

    Thanks. I'll keep an eye on them for any resemblance of named variety. Aztec Warbonnet now shows up on google and points back to this thread!

    To me, the second looks like Nestor, and the fourth like Buddy. Not sure about the other two.:)
