    Eleaoner has come thru the past 2 winters fine. Franklin always seem to suffer in the location it was planted. This spring I repotted Franklin to save what was left of it. I want to get it planted back in the ground now. I also would like to locate it by the Eleanor. The location will get dappled sun filtered thru palms. Will Fanklin be happy (colorful) in such a location?

    Mine are full of color irrespective of the light conditions (I have 3 in different locations).This variety grows like crazy down here.

    Peyton, This gives me 4-5 months to feed and have well established inground Crotons to make it thru the cooler/colder months ahead.
