The Name Game
So, besides pictum, what are the names of all the cool types shown here? I don't know, and there are two reasons why. First, roughly a zillion different crotons exist out there, and even croton breeders and collectors have trouble keeping the names straight. Second, unless you live close to a croton specialist, you will undoubtedly be offered "the croton assortment," a compilation of many different hybrids, none of which come with name tags. My advice: Pick out the one you like, name it after your third cousin, Dweezil, and be happy.
