    Purchased a West Wall this last weekend. Is anyone here growing this cultivar ? How much sun light can it take ? :confused:

    Moose - I believe that "West Wall" is a David McLean name for something else that I may have. Can you post a photo?

    Ricky - I believe you are correct that it is a David Mclean named croton. I will try and get a photo to post for you. Bad lighting right now. :)

    That's right, as far as light goes, it can handle at least a half a day of sun. It will keep the good orange colors in it.

    Ricky - here is my recently acquired West Wall. Photos were taken on Thursday, Oct. 13 in the am. :eek: How does this plant compare to what you have as West Wall ? :confused:

    Perhaps you could post a photo of yourin's ? ;)

    Moose - My "West Wall" lost its battle with the cold two years ago, but it looked the same as yours.

    Ricky - how is your "new" West Wall doing? That pot should be full of roots by August and get planted. ;)
