Fabulous picture, Bernieh! I have never seen Croton flowering...

Uma ... at the moment I've got three that are all in flower. They look lovely with these pendulous blooms hanging all over them ... but you do have to look closely as the colours of the croton are rather distracting.

Bernieh:

Great Croton! I love the flower!

My plant is still blooming also...I can't believe it!

They're a brilliant flower spike ... this pale one is a bit lost against those green and yellow splotches though.

Bernieh:

It is still noticeable though. Do you know the name of this variety?

No idea sorry Andy ...I bought this years ago when I never paid attention to the variety names!

Bernieh:

I can probably find at Crotons.net. They have several pic of Crotons.
Thanks! : > )

I have one called 'Gold Dust' which is common and it looks similar but the leaves are not as long and
narrow.
