    Picked a few yesterday. Now Ids are needed. This one had name of Irene Kingsley, but I think it lacks enough red for Irene Kingsley. Also had another (I passed on but was nice) oak leaf with name of Yellow Oak, leaves smaller with lots of yellow and orange.

    These found at Lowes with Id tags of Excellent, but clearly not. But at $2 got a few.

    Peyton, I think you hit it on the Congo ID. When I was looking at the plant I was thinking it sorta had a Mammy look in a way. Thanks

    The last one appears to be President Reagan.

    I am also thinking that it is a President Reagan. It looks sorta like my President Reagan (but it still looks like crap after last winter). Thanks! Any ID ideas on the Crotons in Post #3? Must be common as they keep showing up at Lowes this year.

    I would hazard a guess and say the first one is probably Buddy. The other three need to get a generation or two of new growth before anyone is going to give you a definite ID.
