I’m in desperate need of I.D.’s for these 3 CROTONS in my gardens. Please help me.

1. Would this be GREEN & GOLD or other? I’ve noticed that RAG’S has been trying to I.D. his in recent postings…mine looks similar but the coloring is different and its leaves seem to be more robust.

2. Robust leaves.

3. Close-up of petioles for I.D. purposes.

4. Would this be GLORIOSA or other? Mine does not resemble the gloriosa pictured in CROTONS OF THE WORLD.

5. Close-up of leaves and petioles.

6. WALKING STICK INSECT…I found this “critter” recently in my garden. I realize they are basically leaf eaters but do they like CROTON leaves…if so, what can I do about them?

Top one resembles Tiffany - but in deep shade. What is leaf length?

Phil...thanks for your quick response. This CROTON only gets about one hour of early morning sun and the leaf length is approximately 16-17 inches long (including petiole). Furthermore it measures 6-7 inches wide at its girth and leathery to the touch.
 
Here's a few pics of Tiffany. Leaves are approx 10" long + 2" petiole. It's been a fast staedy grower here in St. Pete.
