I thought I would post some photos I took over the July 4th weekend.
Ooops, the mosquitos drove me into the house. More tomorrow.
Randy, your stuff looks great. Very curious as to what #2 and #8 are in post #1. Is that Monarch in #3?
Oh my goodness, Randy. The intensity of color is amazing. What spectacular crotons! Yes! Please post more. Many more! And don't forget the names, please.Happy Thank-you!!!
#2 Norwood Beauty
#3 Don't know uh Rapture??? Mike has the same plant. Any help?
#4 Fathers Day
#5 Pop's Yard in shade
#6 I think a Macarthur something I found cruising around in Boca. Ricky calls it Suzy Silverado
#7 I was told this is John Criswick, but not positive.
#8 Another I don't know. Help!
#9 Rudy, Rudy, Rudy B.
#10 Not sure. I found this in Fort Lauderdale a few years ago.
Thanks for the comments
Thanks, Randy! That John Criswick is unreal. The pinks are so soft. I also absolutely love the nuances of color on the Rudy B., the Waterfall and #3. Just outstanding. Please post more!
A couple more for today
Beautiful, Randy! Thanks! I see Chilipan, Wilma, Playboy, ?,?, Bimbo and Nancy Reagan. What are the two middle ones?
Good eye Ana.
The 4th, I don't know. It has an unusual leaf shape & color though. The 5th is Pop's Yard in more sun.
Mosquito season specials
Randy, not only are your crotons gorgeous, but your photography is incredible! Super photos! That Raphael is the most beautiful I've ever seen! Wow to all of these.

What is that amazing cultivar in the third photo?
Thanks Ron, I found the tag. "Dreer Hybrid"
Ana, Your ID skills sure have improved.
#3 I wish I knew. I won this at one of our get together auctions a few years ago. It was someones hybrid. Anyone recognize it???
#4 Scarecrow/Heaven from Ron & a different Her Highness
Randy - how is your Unknown Frank Brown #22 doing? The other air layer I made did not make it. The mother plant is some what shaded. Curious to see how yours has colored up?
As you can see it's doing beautifully. Thanks again.
Holy crap that thing is beautiful. When the rooted sticks got handed out by Jeff, he did his best to distribute them equally amongst those who went to see Dr. Brown that day. Truthfully, we had no idea what anything was. I must have lucked out because I've seen Jeff, Judy and Chris' plants - and none of theirs looked like that.
Next question - any body recognize what it is ?
Super great collection of Crotons...many thanks for posting, beautiful !!!
Randy it is a dead ringer for the plant I got from Cleo that has been ID as Connie Cutler. Not a great picture to much sun to show the top of my plant.
Whilst swatting mosquitoes, I took a photo of the mother to Randy's plant
Here's a close up of the new growth. Like mother, like son.
Lamar, I see similarities, butI don't think they're the same though.
We have no historical name at this time David. This was taken as a nearly dead stick from Frank Brown's garden after the very cold days of the 2010 winter. Its current reference is Unknown from Frank Brown's Garden #22. Bob Alonso is very familiar with the cultivars of Dr. Brown's garden, however he has not seen this plant for an ID as of yet.
