    Post #17 photo #2 is Cameo that was a gift from Keith as a small rooted cutting. It has accelerated its growth, seems to appreciate being in the ground. Here are some updated photos of the same plant taken on 12/13/2013.

    Here's the one air layer off Capt. Kidd. Parent plant is slow, slow, slow.

    Post #17 photo #6 I acquired as a Gloriosa. Now I am not so certain. Could it in fact be Ellen Rutherford? A little help for the confused Moose would be appreciated. Here is an updated photo of the same plant 12/14/2013.

    OK Phil - from the photos you have posted - it appears that your and my plant are the same cultivar. Hmmm, further evidence is that we are both experiencing slow growth rate. The question is which is the original "historical name"?

    I think it may be in fair to say that the infamous fog your always referring to is clouding this one ... :confused:

    :eek:

    'Potter's Pink' is a paint color; Potter's Pink is the lightfast pink that was used in English watercolor painting of the 18th and 19th centuries. Also used in ceramic glazes, it is romantic rose pink, delicate and neutral

    Ana - just a suggestion. Randy's info would probably be a nice side note for the cultivar Potter's Pink Veitchii in the Wiki. ;)

    Post #19 photo #1 is Pink Eburneum. When I acquired this croton, it was tagged as Purple Eburneun. Since the purple moniker may be invalid, I switched it to pink. This may just be an unusual form since this croton does produce lavender, mauve and amethyst colors. I've only made one air layer of this croton a few years back, it was quickly snatched up at an auction. Here is an updated photo from 12/14/2013.
