    David, Your plants are all incredible, but Mr. Hitchcock is just wonderful. It does remind me of my tiger eye, but much more exotic. I love your old oak tree posts. Thank you for sharing your great photos with us. Marnie

    Thomas Edison should be common as much as General Paget. What a great looking cultivar - I can not fathom why this croton is not every where :SmileyPetals

    Nestor can sport prolifically. There's an old one at Sunken Gardens in St. Pete that has a variety of sports on the main or parent plant.
    I think your Pride of Naples is really Pride of Winterhaven (wide leaf form).
    Great pics - keep 'em coming.
