    I just posted these pictures in the wiki. Not the best, I might have to retake them. Chris

    Gorgeous Croton. Where does the name come from?

    another pic with rudy bachmann on the side. I have to admit I haven't been growing things as well as I once did.

    I got this from Carol Graff quite a few years ago. But there was no mention of who hybridized it or what the name came from.

    Here's two picks of one I got at the Searle fall sale two years ago. It made it through the past two winters in good shape. A quick Google search for "Voncilla Barley" leads one back to this site or to a hibiscus called Voncille Barley. No other info.
    That's a Mons Florin at left in second pic

    Phil's Voncilla Barley looks alot like what I am growing as Baron Rothschild. Chris' Voncilla Barley looks like something I do not ever recall seeing ... :rolleyes:
