Here is a list of the Moose's recommended crotons for the beginer. Criteria: (1) Ease of growth (2) Beautiful colors (3) Hardiness (4) Availibilty. I feel its important that a "newbie" experiences early success. Starting off with a slow growing and tempermental cultivars can be frustrating. The list is not in any order of importance. 1 Stoplight 2 Stewartii 3 Rheedi 4 Andreanum 5 Van Buren 6 Pride of Winterhaven 7 Nestor 8 Bravo 9 Eleanor Roosevelt 10 General Padget Did I miss any?
