Beautiful plants, Lamar. I especially love the first one. Huge leaves! Now, let's hope Ray or someone can vouch for the id's. I'd love to put them in.
As for the opinions, it seems Lamar and Phil like the new gallery look Edric proposed above. Any other opinions? Please?
Lamar and Ana, that is Buttercup. It comes from the garden of Scott Dozier in Sarasota circa 2004.
The second pic is Tiffany - note the red/pink petioles. You probably got this from me at one of the get-togethers.
Wow page 46 Delaware, page 70 Tiffany. You can see the very subtle difference, both have red/pink,green, yellow. You are absolutely correct with your I.D. I hope someone will post the other Delaware. Just for the halibut I will post another no I.D. Of mine.
Wow,I certainly do not know that one.This one might need a close up pic and its own topic.
Hey thanks, Ray and Phil! Lamar, next time I make entries I'll put Buttercup in the wiki. Thanks.
Since Edric's gallery demo is too far back for anyone to catch them, I will start another thread that might get the due attention.
Hey, Ray, is Scott Dozier of Sarasota a croton guy? Does he still live here? Please let me know!
Oh, my goodness. Doing these in the new format, changing from old to new took me upwards of two hours just for these few. At least I was able to do it, but I hope I get faster. I did make a lot of mistakes, so I should get a bit better.

Petra- Bob Heredia-Hey, Edric, what do I do about this croton encyclopedia format? Can I delete it?
I've been working on the wiki gallery and looking at all the entries again, so I'm noticing things, which is good. I've asked this in the past, but no one answered. Can someone look at Victor Lemoine and let me know whether Rick's is one? It seems different than the other two. Also, if it isnt', then what is it? Thanks.
Just a bump hoping for a response. You can see new growth lower branches yellow, and green with red mid veins.
This area is some of my oldest plantings 1998/2001 lost fifty or more in the 2010 weather.
Could be all the same, but I wouldn't bet on it. Maybe Rick remember's the source.
Thanks again for all you do.
Hey, Rick, do you remember where your Victor Lemoine came from? Do you think it 's the same as the other two entries in the wiki?
Phew! Marathon session.

***Just an alert for those who choose the full-size option when posting photos: I cannot upload them to the wiki site so I can't put them in the wiki. Dean may know of a solution, but I don't. So if there is any chance the photo should be put in the wiki, please use the thumbnail option when posting pics. Thanks!
I will have to get together with you on this - as I am unsure exactly why you can not upload them to the wiki. But, having said that, I am thinking that thumbnails or attachments are still the best way to go. The reason being that they are much more user friendly for the increasing number of people who are viewing from mobile devices.

I have had three croton heads name this plant I got from Cleo M. Connie Cutler.
Hi Lamar, there's been quite a number of photos by different folks that have been discussed on the forum as Connie Cutler. There just hasn't been enough agreement to put them in the wiki. The wiki should be the very best information available, which makes me shy to put things in unless we're sure. Let's see if the crotonheads here can agree on this one.
Wow, I've got to say what outstanding examples of gorgeous crotons there were in today's entries!

Hey, don't miss Lamar's post above with his beautiful plant. If you feel you're sure it's Connie Cutler, please let us know.
Yellow Petra- Thanks, Robert!
it looks like a very nice Connie Cutler to me.
I thought it was Connie Cutler when I saw it.
Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you Mike and Marie!!! Hey, if anyone else has a Connie Cutler, please post the photo as well. Thanks again!

Dean is making some awesome changes to the wiki. If you haven't been over there lately, check it out, starting from the front page.
I've started going through and trying to correct spelling and typo errors here and there for all the entries. I'm thinking it would be nicer to have things be uniform as much as possible. Photo size is not always possible because of different cameras, settings, etc., but I'm talking about names. In the past, Bren credited the member names as opposed to your real names. Would it be ok if I switched all of those to your real names as I've credited photos in the wiki in the last year? I think I will start doing that, and if you don't want yours changed, i.e. from Moose Knuckle to Ron Kiefert, let me know please and I will leave yours as is.
Also, I really would love to add information to any/all entries. If you have any accurate information about a particular cultivar, i.e. who hybridized, any historical caveat, etc., please let me know so I can add it. Thanks.
Lastly, looking at Captain Kidd- there seem to be two different plants. Rob's and Rick's plants look the same, and Phil's and Ron's plants look the same. Which is the real Captain Kidd? Any opinions?

Ana - Wow! I am so impressed with your hard work on the Wiki photos. Thank you for your dedication - simply phenomenal!
I'm so glad you like it. It should only get better!

I must agree .... your dedication is priceless . And thanks again
Lamar and Ana - thanks for adding "Buttercup" to the wiki. I have a garden area dedicated to purple and yellow (mostly butterfly attracting) plants and several green/yellow crotons of various leaf shapes are very happy in there. Adding the pretty Buttercup to my wish list! Bonus for when I find it - that is the name of our little Shih Tzu - affectionally known as "Cuppie"
Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, Ana
Enough you guys, you are making me blush. Send photos instead!
Ana, something I've been meaning to tell you. Look in the Forum titled "Wiki Article discussions. I've been starting to clean it up. It is a legacy of several versions of old software - kind of a mishmash of many things. But I was noticing that Scott had posted a lot of croton photos there - and you may be able to use some of them.
Dean I think we have most of them, if not all, in the wiki. I'll try to go through and see if we need to complete any more.
