October surprise

Yes I know but for long time I see it and homestead may be is a very old croton from old collector who know!

So, I've been told that Tali is a Stan Wood seedling, and I've also been told that Johnny Shelton is responsible for October Surprise. Just thought I would add to the confusion.
