    Blotched Thanksgiving sport - the whole plant is over 10 feet tall and nearly 6 feet wide. From a cutting ten years ago.
    Davis 14 - sold to me as a Davis Hybrid "possibly Inca".
    Lyrata - one of three in the ground all from cuttings brought home from Jamaica in 2008.
    Pink Rheedii - from a two-story plant around the corner from me. One of the first Crotons I planted - at least 12 years ago. The whole plant is leggy, over nine feet tall.

    Curious if Ricky's Rheedii is Rheedii #2 ? :confused: Ray mentioned in another thread that he believed that Rheedii #2 has a more pronounced pointed leaves than the other two forms. I do not have #2 but the others. My Rheedii & Rheedii #3 do not have such pointed leaves. :eek:

    Nice crotons Ricky, thanks for posting your photos. :)
