    Anybody know of a Splash. If not I'd like to name this one Splash. Seems appropriate. Chris

    Chris - is this your real fast growing seedling? The name sounds good to me. :)

    While your at it, can you post a photo of your seedling you named "Jeff's Jewels" ? :rolleyes: LOL :rolleyes:;)

    Chris, if that one turns out to be a good grower I think it has commercial potential...
    Looks like a giant Gold Dust to me.
    A cursory search with google failed to find a croton called 'Splash'....

    I'll bet that Keith has more than a little interest in acquiring one of these. :rolleyes:

    Chris - so sorry to hear that "Jeff's Jewels" has been lost. :rolleyes: LOL :p

    Hey, wait a minute, "Jeff's Jewels" was never lost! The name is waiting for the next great seedling to come around....

    Croton news letter from Jan. 2008 has a picture of Cindy winning a rare Eburneum named Splash

    Thanks Keith. Try again I guess. How about Splish Splash. I have another name I thought about but I'll wait to see. Chris

    If it were my seedling (and I wish it were), I would have named it Electric Limeade :p

    Peyton...It's funny, Doris and I were talking about it and Gold Nugget came up. So I think that's what it will be. Seems fitting. Chris

    What you have is a fairly common seedling from Gold Dust. Splash is a good name for it.
    Here are a few more yellow seedlings. Bottom left is Splash. The one in the 3-gallon can is Roy Harper. The other two have no names yet.

    Roy Harper looks great!!Similar to Robert Halgrim but certainly different.

    I thought it befitting a giant Gold Dust...

    Since Chris appears to have a water motif in mind ... Gold Shower perhaps? :confused:
