    Here's a couple of shots of a pretty lil gem. It tolerates lots of shades which brings out pinks and pastels.

    Jeff-
    Concur with your comments on this one which is not commonly seen. Not a fast grower for me either although I suspect mine is in more shade (and therefore leggier) than yours. Nice pics.

    Jeff, do you have a photo of the other veitchii- I think you said it was Porters veitchii?

    Keith,

    It probably won't be until next week though. Tonight I'm doing a drive-along with a Ft. Laud. cop on his night shift. (I know, sounds a little crazy) Tomorrow I have two PalmTalk guys here visiting all day and night at the house and this weekend is the palm sale down at Fairchild's Garden. But I will get some pic's up as soon as I can.

    I didn't know that there are two versions of Veitchii. I don't know which one this is. However, I will say that is a good grower and it is BEAUTIFUL!

    Jeff - isn't there a Porter's Pink Veitchii also? Could you post a picture for comparison? :rolleyes:

    Who is Porter? What other hybrids are he/she responsible for?

    Yea, I kind of dropped the ball on the picture. Besides, I just went out last night and took heaps of nice pictures, only to find that Andrea and I can't find a way to load them on, like previously. I can try and find the time to do it from my computer at the nursery, but I'm extreamly busy now getting ready for my sale.

    Bren, I have no idea who Porter was, and what he contributed towards crotons.

    Jeff - Now that you got a replacement cord for your camera to down load pictures into your computer, we would love to see those pictures you mentioned here! :rolleyes:

    Jeff - can you find the "Porter's" CV for a photo op? Did the dogs eat it? :p
