    Thanksgiving - 12' at the peak, from a cutting six years ago!
    The main trunk is as thick as my leg.

    That's obviously one that should have made the fast grower list.

    do you have a closeup of the leaves? this is an oak leaf, isn't it? does it have pink and white spots/sploches with the leaves being about 7 or 8 inches long or does it have only white spots with slightly smaller leaves.

    Looks like I will be moving mine. Planted it in the wrong place. :eek: It would be nice if the crotonheads in the know could compile a list of cultivars and their horticultural preferences and growth rate, i.e shade, full sun, fast, slow moderate....

    Pink, yellow, and white spots and splotches on an oak leaf shape.

    I'd like to see what the Christmas croton actually looks like.

    LOL.....The problem is I'm not sure anyone knows for sure what it looks like. Ron, these plants are full of ambiguity. As soon as you've found the target, it's starts moving again. Think Road Runner and Wiley Coyote.
