Your crotons are looking great, Phil. Especially love that Cameo and Amabile!
The Cameo and Amabile are two that are not phased by the heat or drought and both get intense sun for a good part of the day. Need to add my garden to the list of potential auction sites, maybe for fall of 2018. Thanks, Karl
Gloriosa, Harvest Moon, and my Helen Edge (very different from the one I had gotten as Buddy).
Hot and Steamy, Jose Hybrid 1 Unnamed, and Jose Hybrid 2 Unnamed. These are two nice not to have names!
Unknown from Jeff, Luc's Green and Gold (not sure if I spelled it correctly), and Nancy Reagan.
Peaches and Cream (recent addition to the garden from Marie), Playboy, and Polychrome.
These were three unknowns that I got from Randy. The middle one had a tag from Jeff but I could not make out the name. Let me know if they look familiar.
Red Stripe, Snowcapped (Jose Hybrid), and Survivor (not a good photo).
The top photo is an unknown that I got from either David, Marie, or Jeff (leaves are very large). The second is Yellow Fever (photo is a bit washed out).
Karl, to me, your Helen Edge looks like Buddy, and your Buddy looks like Helen Edge. I wish someone else would give their opinion. Anyone? I don't want to be a nuisance. Is it possible the tags could have gotten mixed up?
Ana and Karl, I thought the same thing. Just didn't get to post it.
It is definitely possible I got them mixed up when I put them in the garden. Looking at the pictures on the wiki I can see that they do look like they could be opposite what I had thought. Both of them have really colored up and started to take on their true appearance. It is good that you and Marie both noticed that. I want to be sure I have the names correct. Thanks, Karl
I went out to explore the gardens this morning and it is obvious I got them mixed up. When I planted them I obviously put them in the opposite locations than I had planned. They both seem happy where they are, so it was meant to be. I always wondered why my Buddy was so brightly colored and Helen Edge not as nice as everyone else, now I know why. Thanks again.
Claude Lorraine, Eggfarm (recent addition from Marie), and Fascination.
Colonel Lindbergh, Flame, and John Soar.
Another unknown croton from Jeff, Lord Belhaven, and Pinocchio.
MacKenzie, Nervia, and Showgirl.
Karl, I know what that 2nd one is in post #88, but I just can't think of it...........it'll come to me eventually!
Here are a few from photos I took today.
ADF 9 which I got from Hawaii is finally starting to color up nicely.
Blotched Rubens pushing new growth.
A couple of pictures of Captain Gilbert Cutler.
Cornelius as you can see by the name tag.
Grenada is pushing new growth.
John Soar is coloring up nicely.
A better photo of Lauren's Rainbow.
Beautiful plants, Karl! Love that Louis Dupuy, Blotched Rubens and Nervia! Your Captain Gilbert Cutler is really nice too! And Lord Belhaven is a punch of color! Thanks again.
Karl, I believe the 2nd one in post #88 is _________ Hichcock, but I'm not positive. I did get it from Jeff originally
