    This is Yuletide. This is an old cultivar very rarely seen. One reason is that is is not very colorful for the descerning collector. The leaves are also on the small size. It was acquired so it would not be lost to horticulture. I think Judy Glock has one for the same reason. :)

    Here is a very nice Unnamed Croton that is growing in Australia.

    Any ideas of what it could be? Perhaps just a variant that developed over there. Very nice in my opinion.

    I think we could probably all agree that this croton won't win any beauty contest, but for a historical purpose, it's one to save and preserve.

    It finally made it into the ground this Memorial Weekend. Although not a real stunner, it deserves a place in Moose Land. :)
