    Crotons is a misnomor. The real name is Codiaeum. It's a plant with colorful leaves... lots of variations. Do a Google image search for pics.

    I only grow a few, but my favorite is C. 'Victoria Gold Bell.' Very nice coloration, with bizarre secondary leaves shooting out of the main leaves.

    Dyflam, I will look for the that guy's book. The author is listed as 'Frank Brown?' thanks

    Chris
