I've only named one thus far..."Daisy's Dance". After 2 years in a pot, it went in the ground in April. This and it's location has made for one happy croton. A few months more of root development and I'll begin to airlayer this one. I have really enjoyed watching Daisy dance. This was a cross of Sybil Griffen & Mrs. Snyder's Disraeli (seed).

Oh my gosh, Jerry, she is spectacular:cool:!!! Those crazy lobes are incredible, as are the colors and overall look. Thanks so much for showing us. She was definitely worth waiting for all the time it took to grow her to this stage. Hey, now that you're back, could you please show us how others in your garden are doing? I miss seeing your plants. Thanks! Ana
 
That's a winner Jerry. I had a quick tour of your croton factory a few weeks ago by the Glock's. I don't remember seeing this one as my head was about to explode after touring your garden after the Glock's garden. Croton overload for sure :cool:

I love Daisy's Dance! I know sweet baby Daisy is smiling from Heaven at her grandpa's creation. What a beautiful gift you have given her and us! I love you!

Jerry, I do not know how I missed this thread. Daisy's Dance is a very unique and most spectacular Croton I have ever seen. If you were to classify the leaf shape what leaf shape listed in the WIKI would fit it best if any? Thanks again for posting the great pictures.
 
Thanks Scott...this one is my favorite for sure. The best way for me to describe the leaves would be a tri-lobe with horns. I need to photograph some of the leaves individually to show how funky they can get.
