Croton is an extensive flowering plant genus in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. The common names for this genus are rushfoil and croton, but the latter also refers to Codiaeum variegatum. It is native to Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, and the western Pacific Ocean islands, growing in open forests and scrub.
In tropical climates, crotons make attractive hedges and potted patio specimens, valued for their striking foliage. They only survive outdoors where temperatures do not normally drop below 10° to 13 °C in winter; colder temperatures can cause leaf loss. In colder climates, the plants are grown in greenhouses or as house plants. The cultivated garden crotons are usually smaller than the wild plant, rarely over 1.8 m tall, and come in a wide diversity of leaf shapes and colours.
We constantly have a large variety of Crotons to select from at varying prices. Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
