    Pic #1 shows the Croton the first week of Aug when I got it. Pic #2 shows the same plant today. This one has gone from yellow to almost white.

    Wow, that looks like a more yellow than white version of Lillian Stoffregen.

    I purchased it at Dolins in St. Pete, it was labeled Fishbone (not). I believe it was in sun there, but I put it in a shady area in the garden. I planted it in ground last weekend in filtered sun. We will have to wait to see if it turns back more yellow now. If it turns back more yellow, I may just move it back to shade.

    Scott,

    I saw those plants. It looked like a yellow (instead of white) Lillian Stoffregen. I wasn't aware of the two forms but it does happen i.e. two forms of Juliette Delarue. Lillian is a very fast grower and is probably only outpaced by Andreanum and Purity.

    Lillian Stofferregen keeps up the pace with Andreanum in my garden. L. Stofferegen stands at 6' now and that includes me taking cuttings off the top of her this year. Come spring her neighbors will be relocated.
