    I'm a big sucker for the interrupted leaf form of crotons. This cultivar may be the best looking of the interrupted leaf crotons and one of my favorites.

    Beautiful, Ron. I've had this one but it has trouble getting color for me. I've had it almost a year. My tag says 'Trinidad Interrupted Leaf'. Would you say that's the same name? I would think so. Ron, how much sun will you put it in?

    Ana - It seems to appreciate bright sun. This one gets about 4 hours of strong sunlight until the house shades it in the early evening.

    Looks like a nice Coral Shower; needs bright light to color up well.

    Phil - if you saw the plant in person, you would detect that the leaves are different. The Trinidad Interruptum has longer and wider leaves. Plus the interrupted leaf end is quite extended on most of the leaves. My Coral Showers usually develops only sporadic interrupted leaves while the Trinidad Interruptum is pretty consistent.

    I've got a few interrupted type leaf varieties. One nice one I've got is mostly orange with black markings, lance shaped leaf.
