Group,

Andrea and I are hosting a Croton garden tour here at the house this saturday, which will start at 10;30am and go well into the afternoon. We are expecting the largest crowd ever for one of these garden tours. Lots of good food, drinks and by far the largest collection of extreamly rare and hard to find crotons will be brought for silent auction. For those of you that own a copy of Crotons of the World, written by B. Frank Brown, many of the crotons mentioned in the book will make their way to the auction. Who knows, maybe the Godfather himself, will make his way there and show up. He's 94 years old now, and in relatively good health still.And hopefully Ryan will get some good pictures.

Jeff Searle is good friends with Dr. Frank Brown. Earlier this year Jeff arranged a pilgrimage for some of us crotonheads to Dr. Brown's home. It was amazing how extemely witty he is at 94. We got him to sign our books. Some of us had his original croton book (really hard to locate), Florida's Beautiful Crotons that was published in 1960 for him to sign as well.

Some who made the trek: Jim & Judy Glock (long time IPS members, attendees at many a Biennel), Chris Mayhew (nephew of famous croton hybridizer Henry Coppinger), Rob van der Borg (Forum Member), Jeff and myself. We also visited long time associate of Frank Brown (and seen often in the Book) - Cleo Millare at his nursery. :)

Personally, I am bringing 20+ large air layered plants that are found in Frank Brown's book for the silent auction that Jeff mentioned in this thread. All plants with starting bids under $10. Hopefully some "newbies" can get a jump on starting their collection very reasonably. Bringing: Eburneum, Charles Rutherford, Queen Victoria, Yellow Mrs. Iceton, Twist & Point, Pink Eburneum, Robert Lavalois, Andreanum, Davis #1, Fishbone, Fred Sanders, Dr. Frank Brown, Gloriosa, Reliance, Stewarti, Van Buren, Ram's Horn, and Golden Glow. You can see all these plants at Palmpedia.net on the croton forum. in the Fall Croton Meeting and Tour thread. :greenthumb:

I haven't met Frank personally but have had a bit to do with him when I was President of The International Tropical Foliage and Garden Society. He was our overseas Patron, a real Statesman and Gentleman of the global tropical garden world.

Just as I'm overwhelmed by the bromeliads and heliconias, crotons seem to come in endless varieties--all beautiful. There are many on our farm in Puerto Rico and I don't know any of their names. I guess this is a good place to start. Anyone know this one's name?

I agree with Ray on Irene Kingsley. Please feel free to add some more pictures of other crotons you have down in PR. I would love to see them and the property.

Just a small example of Frank Brown's horticultural exploits: he was evidently an early fan of spotted-leaf cast-iron plants, Aspidistra lurida 'Milky Way', so he grew and must have sold lots of them. The few pots I took home have expanded into large patches.

Thanks to Dr. Brown and surfers who want their yards to look like Puerto Rico or Costa Rica, Brevard County has lots of tropical-looking yards.

Cindy - I look forward to seeing you post your additional croton photos in April. B) Jeff and Ray have been into crotons many more years than I. There are alot more "Crotonheads" on the Croton Forum: www.palmpedia.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?26 that are more than willing to help you with ID's and growing questions. :greenthumb: Looking at your farm thread, it does look like your Puerto Rico spread is in a tropical paradise.:wub: Propagating more varieties of crotons would add even more colors. Your climate and soil conditions are perfect for crotons. :winkie:

Patricia - Jeff Anderson is located on the Pacific Coast. Another Croton collector in Costa Rica is Bob Heredia. Bob's place is above San Jose overlooking the city. I cannot speak for these gentleman, but knowing their character - I am sure they would help a fellow lover of crotons to help re-establish their collection in their new garden. You could PM Jeff here on Palm Talk. I am unsure if Bob monitors or is a member of Palm Talk. I do see him at on the Croton Forum almost daily: www.palmpedia.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?26. Just sign up as a member there and you can send him private messages.
Here are a few more photos for your viewing pleasure ... :blush:

Thank you so much for your kind and informative answer! I just spent about an hour (when I was supposed to be monitoring our son to be sure he was doing his overdue homework...) enjoying many threads from the Palmpedia link you sent me. Well, when I came up for air (and coffee) my teenager was snoozing so I had to fuss at him, but it was still worth it to see all the pretty plants. Just as not very long ago all palms sort of looked alike and all the names blurred together, now I can see that crotons are distinct individuals too. If I could have abandoned my job/family to attend Jeff's event I would have! Please keep your group going and one day I'll make it (or host one at our farm!!!)Flights can be cheap from Florida to PR....

Cindy - that sounds like a great future venue for a croton garden tour / meeting. Our next Crotonhead get together has been tentatively scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 2012. It will be held at TikiRick's garden in Fort Lauderdale, FL, which is on the waterways. Rick has one of the best gardens I have visited. His use of a vast array of all types of plants is remarkable. Probably one of the best gardens per square foot to be found anywhere. If you could make that event, you would be amazed. Plus you would make some connections with other croton fans that could trade you plants not available in PR and vice-a-versa.

Kindest regards, :)

Ron, thank you very much for your info. Jeff is my palm mentor, so probably he's going to become my croton mentor as well :winkie: I didn't know about Bob. Interesting. I've been to PalmPedia and watched all of the croton photos they have, one by one. I've been gathering some new ones, here and there, and am planning on buying more in a few days when going to some nurseries recommended by Jeff.

You guys amaze me. You do know much more about plants in CR than all of us, Costa Ricans. :D
