Bermuda Red looks remarkably like Baron Rothschild. I've had a Hawaiian collected croton for many years that I've been calling Baron Rothschild. Perhaps it is this other cultivar. Does anyone know where this name originated?
Hi: just hangin on the side and chose to add this pic and place a name tag on my plant,does it pass the Baron/Burmuda Red test. As you can see new growth on the right side but it seems to color up as it matures. TKS
I reside on the naysayer side. They are distinct in my opinion. Bermuda Red is a much faster grower than Baron Rothschild for one, at least that has been my experience. Also have noticed that Bermuda Red prefers a sunny aspect that looses a lot of color when shaded. Baron Rothschild maintains it colors in all but deep, deep heavy shade.
