    I agree with Mike. This photo looks like Jim and Judy's plant that was entered in the wiki under Dave Mclean #93.

    Of course, Ron, I always pay attention to your posts!:D. I only knew that because I recently acquired that cultivar and I had looked it up in the wiki. Otherwise I would have been stumped. Keep posting, please!

    The one above reminds me of Henry's Favorite, Lamar does it have really large leaves?

    It looks like my plant from Jose in too much shade. For a croton with very large leaves, it's unusual that it needs a pretty decent amount of sun exposure to maintain color.

    For Wiki encyclopedia name history. This is a Henry Coppinger cultivar. Chris Mayhew recognized while visiting. He relayed that his Aunt (Henry's widow) had told him that this was Henry's favorite croton. So posthumously Henry Coppinger's wife named it Henry's Favorite through Chris. Unless you would prefer Unknown or Unnamed Henry Coppinger cultivar.

    Lamar, that Dave Maclean 93 is beautiful!

    Thanks, Ron. There is some information like this, but I will add more of your detail!
