    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

    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.

    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.
