    Croton Girl,

    Welcome to the forum and the last picture....well it's a little hard on the eyes.:) Any more pictures? The more the merrier.

    Bren,

    Hope you had/having a nice birthday!

    Possibly Croton Girl's neighbor has the elusive "Fuzzy Johanna Copinger" :rolleyes:



    LOL Ron. :p

    When Croton Girl posts a better photo, perhaps an accurate ID can be made. It is a mature healthy plant for sure. :)

    Number 3, in the 2nd set, looks like Andreanum to me.

    You're going to have a hard time getting roots with nighttime temperatures lower than 65. If you can root them indoors or on the south side of the house would be your best bet.

    The first one appears to be either a Mammay or a Golden Mammay in need of sunlight. It might even be a Mammay seedling with all that green. The second is Stoplight, the third is Andreanum, and the last one could be quite a few different things, again it needs more sun. I would guess that it's probably one of the Davis hybrids although, it could be Fishbone.

    Hi Croton Girl (real name?),

    Pretty good names already mentioned. But, in post #10, your third picture is not a croton, but a cordyline or Ti plant. And the last picture, is that a seedling coming up through the brick pavers, or a cutting laying there? Thanks for sharing though.

    Jeff

    #3 is not a Queen Victoria, it's a Ti plant.

    Jeez, you're 100% correct. I looked at it quick and thought it was another Queen Victoria. I stand corrected.

    Hey, believe me, I thought you were first right when I looked at it too. Only later, I looked it over again and said "wait a minute"! But from a distance, it could look like a QV.
