Croton

Croton

This is a close up of the foliage of the Croton, with foliage like this who needs flowers? Crotons are commonly seen in South Florida and used for just about anything you can think of to do with a shrub. I have seen these from about 2 feet up to about 10 feet tall and the variety of foliage color is tremendous but primarily green with yellow, red or orange markings. There is a variety of leaf shapes and sizes as well. A very versatile shrub.

This is a Mammy Croton, it is supposed to be dwarf only getting 3 feet tall. I am thinking we will wait and see if that is true. Plants have a way of not following instructions on their prescribed full size.
