Codiaeum 'Mammy' croton

Mammy 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. California has cool nights and warmer nights are probably the thing needed for good growth, these plants really like heat. 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.

The foliage on this selection is 1" wide and about 8" long, twisted and all shades of green, red and yellow. The plant is compact and dense, and colors up particularly well in part shade. An exception selection.
