Interesting Croton Flower

A couple of weeks ago I brought in our two large Croton plants that were doing so well on the front porch. Since I almost lost them several years ago when I left them out during a November freeze I try to bring them in early. One of the plants sprouted a beautiful flower that you can see in the first picture. We suspect these are flower seeds so we captured some of the seeds to plants later. The second picture shows the small red cone shaped leaf at the base of the flower. Quite a nifty looking flower.
