Yellow Centered Croton

These evergreen tropical shrubs are from Malaysia, known worldwide for their very colorful waxy foliage. Popular as houseplants, but in frost free areas, they can be grown outdoors. Most often seen in Hawaii and Florida, only occasionally in Southern California in warm micro-climates.

Needs bright light and high humidity to do well, but do color up nicely in part shade if warm enough. Can grow to 6' tall or more. Best with rich soil and water. Feed to promote growth. In the Euphorbia family. Easy to grow from cuttings, but are relatively slow growers.

The colors in each selection can change under different environmental conditions and season.

This selection has long narrow lobed foliage is dark green with a bold lobed yellow variegation down the midrib. It's a vigorous upright shrub with great contrast.
