    Thea is now over six feet tall. Great Fall color from the western exposure. Notice "Thea's Daughter" below the main plant. This seedling is almost 12" tall.

    Ricky,

    When it comes to crotons displaying all the shades of different pinks, it dosen't get much better than a nice Thea. Your plant really looks nicely grown, and happy. Thanks for the update.

    I'm going to air-layer that big head on the right next Spring. Damn thing's getting in the way of the path. It's also the only one I have, so that chunk will go somewhere else in the garden. There are some lower limbs and pieces in the back that I'll cut and put in the mistbed same time.

    Ricky,
    Beautiful! I have a Thea, but it looks nothing like yours. I think mine may not be getting sufficient sun. Very little pink.

    Rick - Mine is in full sun from around mid-afternoon until sunset. It's also three feet from a knocker head. :eek:)
