    I have this one tagged as "WTF". Mike (Bullwinkle) gave it to me and some other croton lovers. I dug a very wide hole when planting with plenty of soil acidifying amendments. It is starting to take off - the mild winter did hurt either. :eek:

    Many have seen this croton. No one has stepped up to offer an ID. Something in my gut suspects this may be another un-named Davis hybrid. :confused:

    Its hard to tell by the photo, the leaves mature to some beautiful pastel pinks when colored up. Gotta air layer on this baby for the auction!

    "WTF" is a "tongue in cheek" acronym I assigned to my plant until a historical name is discovered. :eek:

    Ron,

    What makes you think it may be a Davis croton?
