Now this one was sold to me as gloriosa, but I dont think it is, I have a gloriosa in another spot, similar shade conditions, colors are totally different, anyone know???
Yes, that's Gloriosa. I have a bunch of them in the ground that look exactly like that.
It also looks alot like what we call Royal Flush, which I quite often think it looks pretty much like Gloriosa. Then last summer, Bob Alonzo sent me a cutting that he called Royal Flush and it grew up as a totally different plant. So, then I was really confused. But this past cold killed it.
Anyways, it's a really pretty croton that should someday be growing in my collection. Lol!
Here are some Gloriosa in our garden. The second one is from the first Searle Brothers sale I went to in 2002. It's all green right now (new growth) because the tops were cut off and re-rooted.
Jeff - the Royal Flush I got from you has much wider leaves and pronounced "lobes" (Almost Semi-trilobed).
