    Everyone's Crotons should be at or near their peak of looking good at this time of the year. Where are the photos of 'Croton Bling" getting posted ? ;) Lets see some pictures before the cold fronts arrive. :)

    Afterwards we can bitch and moan about the how the winter is pissing us off. :D

    last set of pics. Did not see one croton on recent trip to LA or ABQ although aspens were in full color along with lots of yellow blooming sagebrush in New Mexico.

    First pic is a Thai croton from Cleo at USF Sale ; something else to schlep inside in cold wx.

    I've been calling it Dayspring and have several others but with smaller leaves and less color. (This one could use a bit more sun.) I recall a thread for several weeks ago on Dayspring and a larger leaf, better colored version with a name that I do not recall.

    Thanks Phil, your plants are looking very nice this time of year. Were slated for a drier than normal and warmer winter this season.

    Beautiful fotos and thanks for the names. I will be adding your fotos to my croton files which little by little makes me a more informed collector...I'm relatively new-comer to this game and appreciate any info from the veterans on this forum. Thanks to all the guys and gals that contribute and looking forward to learning more from all of you regarding this beautifully leaved plant.
