    Randy - the coloring & veining looks more like Mosaic prior to the pink...White Mosaic?

    I agree jerry, it's markings resemble more of a Mosaic than a Polychrome. But in order to call a croton a White Polychrome, your plant has to originate from a Polychrome. The White form of Ann Rutherford I'm sure originated from a Ann Rutherford plant. And so on. Because, the last thing you want is people coming up with all kinds of "forms" from a zillion different crotons that they "think" looks like that parent plant. Right?

    OK, so White Mosaic it is.:rolleyes::rolleyes: Sorry, I really don't remember the origin of the plant, so I can't comment on that. Does anyone have a White Polychrome or a photo? Here's another photo with the flash showing just a hint of pink. It is in deep shade though. DSC_0047.jpg

    White polychrome sounds like an over eager description of a Polychrome that has not had time for its leaves to mature from the initial white to pink; same for Mosaic. Sew hat it looks like in late October.
