    This is a plant I just recently planted in my yard. I'm pretty sure it's either a seedling that I think resembles a Bravo somewhat, or it was a sport off of a Bravo, just can't remember. What do you guys think?

    I am confused. This is what I have labeled as Excellent. It is definitely not the same cultivar as Jeff's picture. Could mine be Angel Wing or perhaps I am hoping America? :confused:

    Come on you Croton Eye people, what is the scoop? :rolleyes:

    Thanks,

    Ron. :)

    Ron - Yours looks like Angel Wing.

    I'm 90% certain Jeff's is Excellent with excellent color.

    Ray,

    I just so happen to plant this about 50' away from an Excellent plant. I looked a few times back and forth since you brought this up and it does have similarities to Excellent. The new one just has alot more pinks in the leaves, so I'm going to watch them both for the next several months and see what happens and if there's any changes once it's established. Thanks.....

    Ray - you need to come look at both plants on your next visit. I did today and I am not so sure if they are the same cultivar. Both are growing in simular conditions and filtered lighting. :rolleyes:
