    I find this croton very cute, but slow-growing. Anyone else have this?

    Your plant has great color. I had never really paid attention to it before. Sounds like this would be a perfect plant for the front of the garden. Thanks for sharing your photos, there are obviously many plants that I missed when I toured your garden before the auction. I should have paid more attention and made sure I saw everything.

    I don't know if I can really recommend this plant as any kind of landscaping plant. It is about 3-4 years old and still very small. I would think it would make a nice pot specimen, though. A cute and interesting plant. I am trying to find plants I have that could be used in the wiki. I haven't seen many photos of these, but would love to see others!

    Very pretty, it's a shame it's so slow. One I don't have.

    Jeff, it's probably a historical plant, but not worth it if the intent is to propagate. You'd die waiting!
