New Crotons

Codiaeum variegatum "Miami"
A cross between "Mortii" and "Bogoriensis" found growing between the two in the Pinecrest section of South Miami. Note the red underside of the leaf.

Codiaeum variegatum "Tuxedo"
From Negril, Jamaica, note the bulbous base of the leaf and the second thinner, pointed bulb at the top. Very formal looking leaf, hence the name.

Codiaeum variegatum "Fishhook"
The leaf is identical to "Multicolor" however the only colors here are yellow and green. Rather than calling it a "Yellow Multicolor", I've named it Fishhook for the 'barbs' on the leaf margin and the curled leaf tip.

RE: New Crotons

Those are beautiful, Fawnridge. I always look forward to your very knowledgable posts on crotons. They are my favorite foilage plants.

RE: New Crotons

I'd love to see the photos, (I'm attempting to overwinter some new Crotons this fall/winter) but I'm getting a '404 Not Found' message.

Are they your own crosses?

RE: New Crotons

nanw - send me an e-mail and I'll forward you the pictures. I took them down a few days ago.
