I've had this one for about a year & is a great grower. :cool: Does anyone have a larger one with a photo of some older leaves?

I was under the impression that Plaid Oak colors up to some soft pinks as the leaves age? :confused:

Oh, just re-read Phil's post. Never mind. :eek:

Randy was kind enough to bring a huge rooted cutting to the Moose Land. :D

Thanks Randy, very much appreciated! :eek:

And here it is in the ground, next to the sidewalk so the pedestrians can enjoy it.

Ron, your Plaid Oak looks great. I got mine from Phil and I love it. What a cheery, grateful plant! Grows at a nice rate and with great color. Another great hybrid- thanks Phil!:cool:

Another case of the dumb name sticking. Like almost edison, that plant was too good to not have had a real name, but noone was familiar with it. It grew in a very restricted area, the 441 corridor in hollywood, and nowhere else. But it was fairly common in that area. What's unusual about that is most good crotons in yards were in the area of a nursery that sold crotons back in the day. Nothing else unusual or exiting was in that area, just that one.

Glad it got a name. Its not so restricted now. :gangnamstyle:
