Thomas Roland ?


Esteemed Member
This is an old cultivar that was sold by the Royal Palm Nursery in Oneco, FL. Has this cultivar survived? Described in Dr. Frank Brown's FLORIDA'S BEAUTIFUL CROTONS (1960)

Anyone have this one? :rolleyes:

Well -with the heavy response for this cultivar here, it may be an "Alas poor Thomas Roland ..." :rolleyes:

Googling and binging produced absolutely nothing, nada, zip, zero for a croton with this name, but hey I tried...

No, and thanks to Moose and you, you guys tried. This might be one of those long lost varieties that is history. Without a picture somewhere on this cultivar, there's just no one around that would be old enough and a sharp memory to know it if he saw it.
