Crotons are colourful, ornamental foliage plants that work well both outside and in! Popular varieties such as ‘Petra’ tend to be covered in bold shades of yellow, red, orange, green and sometimes black! Enhance their gorgeous vivid foliage by growing them in colorful accent pots.
Crotons thrive in warm, humid weather and will tolerate full to part sun. Try to keep the soil moist but not excessively damp.
Keep Crotons away from children and pets as this plant has poisonous sap inside.
Even though they are a tropical, Crotons are excellent performers in cool temperatures too. After the summer season is over save them for your Fall arrangements. Bring out their fall foliage by planting them with garden mums and ornamental kale.
