Codiaeum variegatum

The croton ‘mammy’ is a vibrantly coloured, dense, bushy plant that enjoys plenty of sun. The stunning leaves are twisted and curled as they grow and can range in colour from orange, red, green, yellow and sometimes even black! They are perfectly suited for the warm Indonesian environment in which they live.
