|I was browsing the database and came across this entry: which I think is incorrect. Since Paul took the photo's at a nursery I think the plant was mislabeled. I don't believe the plant is a Ficus, but rather Excoecaria cochinchinensis, common name "Chinese Croton". There is an entry for E. cochinchinensis in the database but I didn't propose to move the photo's because I found no listing for the cultivar 'Jungle Fire'.
Here's a photo from a nursery listing for "Chinese Croton" - Excoecaria cochinchinensis:
I copied and pasted this from the ITIS site:
Excoecaria L. – accepted
Excoecaria agallocha L. – accepted
Excoecaria agallocha var. orthostichalis Müll. Arg. – not accepted
Excoecaria polyandra Griseb. – not accepted
So, what do you all think about the listing in the database, Ficus or Excoecaria?
