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?
Nice! I don't think I ever saw one.
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 ...
Separate names with a comma.
