    Beautiful but as any Thai variety, it's a sure bet to defoliate yearly and die sooner than later in my garden.

    Not able to address the cold-hardiness since this one came in the house on cold nights. I do not like to run terminal experiments on scarce crotons.

    ...and there's one in yard in Ft. l but it is guarded by a fierce chocolate lab. Many of you saw it over there at a previous meeting. Mine is slow but not excruciatingly slow like some...
