    All of these, except Ethel Craig that's been in the ground for 10 years, went in as rooted cuttings after Wilma (2005). Southwest corner of the garden - hard afternoon sun. There's a knocker head (5') in the photos and another one about 20' away that also hits this area.

    4. Lyrata from a cutting smuggled in from Jamaica
    5. Miami - note the pink underside of the leaves
    6. Ethel Craig - cutting from Delray Beach

    :cool: I agree - and reportedly not very fast. This must be one of Ricky's older crotons. :)

    I guess I'm going to have to start some chunks of Sunrise in the mistbed.
