Codiaeum variegatum Earl of Derby

Some feel this croton may have been re-named Fred Sander, as this Veitch's Catalog description from 1878 suggests. Others feel this is a completely different cultivar altogether.

A trilobed-leaved form of the Disraeli type, with nearly the whole central portion of the leaf-blade yellow, the margin and tips of the lobes a grassy green.
