    Oh my goodness, Randy, that's what I needed today.:D. What color they all have. Waiting for more names. That one yellow/green in the first set with the uneven lobes is still Philadelphia, in my opinion. The description in the Christian Papers, as Robertico pointed out, fits it too perfect.

    My quick guesses for the next set:

    Caribbean Star
    Davis #7
    ?
    Flamingo
    Nancy Reagan
    Kiss and Tell
    Combo
    Edwin T. Meredith

    I was too quick in my guessing and didn't look at the closeups. I have two revisions. #2 is probably White Ann Rutherford that looks more yellow, and #5 is Wilma. I've never seen orange in my Wilma and it threw me off, but even the leaf is not quite like Nancy Reagan. So, let's try again!:eek:

    By the way, can you edit these posts?

    VERY, very good Ana;) Your Id'ing is outstanding & the Edwin T Merideth is yours as a prize.

    The third would be impossible to Id. It's a sport of a sport from an extremely unimpressive croton. It has red petioles & yellow stems. It's keeping it's color for now, but then again it's a croton.

    The one you thought was Kiss and Tell is a croton I found at the entrance to a small development in Boca. Ricky calls it Suzi Silverado. I think it's in the Macarthur complex & the colors are really variable.

    Woohoooooo!!! I win a prize! A beautiful Edwin T. Meredith. Thanks, Randy:D. Randy, the colors on your crotons are unreal. Really, they're almost unreal. That orangy Wilma and that pink-leaved veiny unknown are so vibrant. Suzi also. Thanks for sharing. Can you show more?:rolleyes:
