Koki addressed these cultivars in the Christian's Croton Controversy thread. Rather than commenting and going off topic in Ray's thread, I will express my thoughts on these cultivars that put on displays of pastel pinks. Rafael enjoys a shaded aspect. My croton has larger leaves than my Claude Lorraine with less pronounced lobes. It also exhibits deeper pastel pinks than Claude Lorraine Here is what i am growing as Rafael. The last two photos are close ups of coloring up leaves revealing the pink pastel shading.
