Or something else. The leaf is the same shape as Kentucky, but after reading the replies in the "Pink" thread, perhaps this is something else:

Here are two rooted cuttings of Kentucky from the one already in the ground. These were in deep shade, hence the mostly green color.

By the way, does anyone recognize the plant with the white and green leaves in the upper left of the first photo? I got this from Jesse Durko around 10 years ago. It was the last one he had and he called it "Cat's Claw".
 
Here's a few with nice pinks - good old Gen MacArthur in shade. This does not look much like the leaves on the parent plant which are in much more sun. The last pic is Kentucky with hints of fresh pink but should turn orange later on.

...and here's a Kentucky with some different shades of pink that should turn brilliant orange.

Ricky - there are three different leaf shapes there and a myraid of coloration going on there as well. Not to mention we have seen some crotons do some weird things since the cold winter we had.

With these variables in mind, you may find it difficult to get someone to commit to an I.D. Let it keep going and once you get some consistent shapes and color patterns, perhaps an I.D. can be made.

If I was forced to make an I.D. from your pictures, I would guess The Clown because it looks like it is morphing. I got to give you credit, you defintely find some unique and unusual plants. :)

Moose :cool:
