    Kip, top left no I D, top right my seedling I call Connie and Lee, #3 your question has a tag but I think it is Mosaic. I am sure someone will come on and correct me if I am wrong.

    Hi Lamar,

    Nice pictures! But I agree with Mike, your croton is not Mosaic. Hope to see more.

    Hey Jeff is there any chance that it could be Compte de Germiny?

    Lamar, now that you mention it it looks a lot like the compte de germiny that I have from Steve and Marie. One of my favorites. Kip

    Kip, I think the one that you got from us that's similar is Compte de Castelaine.

    Lamar - This morning I will be finishing applying this mulch from my 12th load. Unfortunately - I am doing an area in the northeast quadrant of the Moose Land. Can't get my Moose Mulch Hauler close, have to use my rubbermaid cart. I fill three 7 gallon containers at a time, spread and repeat.

    Since the temperatures are nice and cool for intensive labor, I will go for load #13 later. Gonna see how much I can get done today and on President's Day. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel :)

    Ha ha, no I have been growing and killing crotons forever, the rookie is the machine I couldn't find the turn it on button a very few weeks ago. The real number might be a little bit higher, I told you to stop I need help counting.

    Hi Lamar. Your collection looks beautiful and is obviously quite extensive. It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday at the USDA event. I think you will enjoy your membership in TFEPS. Lots of croton lovers in our group. Look forward to seeing you at the meeting on the 25th. Keep the photos coming. Very nice. Marnie
