    The first two photos are NOT of my plant although I wish it was.

    Is Jesse Durko in the Croton Society? How about Bob Alonzo? :confused:

    Ray,

    The infamous "Tapestry". And I actually just had a croton collector ask me on monday if I knew it and had any for sale. I just laughed.Their both very nice. Is anyone propagating these at all? Or is it one of these pain-in-the-ass varieties that just don't seem to want to grow?

    Jeff

    The White one grows at a snails pace. I've had it for three years and it's still less than 2 feet tall. The red one is from a photo Lee sent me earlier this year. I'm not sure who's plant it is.

    I recently was told about the Tapestry croton in your pictures and that he no longer has them. He said they died awhile back. This is a tough one!
