I got this named croton from a source that I choose not to disclose. Interestingly, I've seen photos of this named variety posted on this orum. My plant does not look like the others. Its a great looking croton but I wonder what it is? Can anyone guess I got it as? Can anyone tell me what it could be? :confused:

Ron, I have a similar one that I got from Tim Anderson that he called Krakatoa. It's so different from the other Krakatoa that I have it labeled as Tim's Krakatoa but it's more like Helen Edge or Pop's Yard.
 
I've never seen a Krakatoa, but if it is a Helen Edge, I agree it really needs some sun. Having said that, I do have a small one that gets mostly shade and
the color is much more vibrant. Perhaps because the only fertilizer I use these days is liquid azalea fertilizer as a foliar spray. It has boosted the
color in a number of my not-so-great specimens.
 
here you go Perry - Krakatoa in side yard by house. Cute little bugger but rather slow.
