Thanks for sharing, it's nice to always see others jump in from other parts of the world. If you have other crotons growing in the yard, or maybe around town, we would love to see some additional pictures. Thanks in advance......

Shane - welcome to the forum. Thanks for taking the time to post your photos of pretty crotons. It is great to see that this forum has an increasingly international flavor to it. :cool:

I suspect there are many Aussies viewing this forum but have not registered. Crotons are popular in Australia - wish more would join in on our discussions. :)
 
Hi Every one and Thanks for the warm welcome,
Heres a heap of cuttings I found, hanging over fence's or in public gardens,;)
They have all started to sprout green leaves
Hopefully most will take,
Cheers
Shane

Wow,looks like you been running around clipping like crazy :) If you keep them in your greenhouse you might not have to cut of the leaves?Just a little water and shade should preserve some of the leaves.

Hi, I find if I only leave 1 or 2 leaves on a cutting and then cut them in half, I get a better survival rate, The shadecloth is the side of my shed so the breeze can blow through,

Hi All, hope your green thumbs are going great,
I just moved a heap of plants as we are lucky enough to be getting a pool.
Heres some pics of the cuttings grown up a bit.
Cheers :D

Wow Shane, they are really cranking along. :eek: You are entering your peak growing season as ours is deminishing. You certainly will be adding some spectacular colors surrounding your new pool! :cool:
 
Hi All, As promised I got out the Camera and got some pics of the crotons in my garden,
Hopefully my sharing can help me get names for some of them,
Cheers
Shane:)

Here goes....
#1 LL Punctatum, LR Rams Horn
#3 UL Leopardia, UR Irene Kingsley, LL picturatum or majesticum depending on mature leaf length
#4 LR Ebrurnum/Andrew/Madagascar
#5 LL Dolores
#6 UL Bogoriensis, UR Red/Pink Eburnum, LL Multicolour, LR Zulu
#8 UL Prince Philip, LL Picasso's Paintbrush
#10 UL Joanna Coppinger, LR Mrs. Iceton
#11 UL Bogoriensis, UR Eburnum with big ugly degenerate sport, LL Zulu
#12 LL Multicolour, LR Punctatum (a sport from Aureo Maculatum)
#16 UL Rheedii, LR Tortise Shell (sport from Bravo)

For most of the others, you'll probably have to wait until you get some mature size leaves in a year or two.
