Driving home I noticed some croton refuse in a trash pile adjacent to the street. I looped around the block and found this Charmer. Although not rare, it is not all that common either. Very sad to see this old plant's possible demise. Hopefully it was just a hard prune. This croton was unseen in the back yard or I would have noticed before. Could have just as easily been a Miss Colette. Ironically this yard was an account of mine 17 years ago.
