    Purchased with the name of "Yellow Oak" ;) 2 yrs ago. I am ready to put a name tag on this one.

    Scott - perhaps an Irene Kingsley ? :confused:

    Ron, I am leaning towards that it is also a Irene Kingsley. But pinks in older leaves. My Irene Kingsley (pictured here) growing a few feet away looks very much alike. After all it is a Croton.

    Hi Scott - the plant that you have is President Reagan . This plant likes full sun. It looks like your plant is in too much shade.

    Took the pictures before the sun was up good in the sky. The first set of pictures did not really show the pink in the older leaves. My Irene Kingsley never shows any pinks as it should not.

    Leaf shape and color strongly suggest Pres. Reagan.
