    This one may be difficult. But then I thought Tommy Halgrim would be a difficult ID. This one has a name, I got it from its creator. To be honest, I don't recall if my plant is a good representative of the donor plant. Its has been distributed to a very few, definitely not fast. It appears that a Thai hybrid was used as one of the parents. I don't have a shade house, so many of my potted crotons have got to get moved to either chase the sun or the shade. This one got tucked out of the way so may not have have been given enough loving that it deserves. Noticed on the tag it had not been fertilized since Feb. 17th. That oversight has been corrected and it got repotted today.

    Some close-ups: Leaves are 6 to 7 inches long. I believe the parent plant had longer and a little wider leaves.
