    Ray - It's definitely not Red Quill. I have two of those in the ground. The leaves of this plant are much wider and much more orange.

    Moose - That's where it's from.

    Here's mine. The mother plant is not loved & not much of a looker. We only took cuttings because of the leaf shape. A little TLC & it's looking better already. Moose's is the same.

    The Moose does not have an eagle eye, I only knew it because Randy brought me this croton. Resisting calling it another unknown, he has referred to it as Montoya Circle, its place of origin. Randy has previously posted pictures seeking an ID. All croton visitors at the Moose Land have been shown this croton, asking their opinion. None have been able to identify.

    It really does not look like anything I have seen. :confused:
