More nice photos.

In the first photo, the colors resemble Stewartii but the leaf shape is not right. Whatever it is, I like it.

Photos 2 has Queen Victoria or Regina with the narrow leaf (left). The semi-oak leaf on the right is reminiscent of Colonel Lindbergh or W.W. Coles.

The last photo is one of my favorite yellow and green crotons - Chrysophyllum also known as Hookerianum
 
The second picture, I doubt there's a Colonel Lindberg, these leaves look to big. I don't know W.W. Coles.

The last, Chrysopyhllum has very nice color, the best I've ever seen I think.
 
Don't know if they're in the right order, but here are the 4 shots of Crotons I took while in Scotland.
