Croton


 


CHARACTERISTICS: These are one of the most eye-catching plants, with leaf colors of yellow, pink, red, and orange. They will wilt if the soil completely dries out. Crisp crunchy leaf ends indicate soil is staying too moist. Crotons are available in many different leaf colors and leaf shapes.

PRUNING: Cut off the top of the stem, back to the joining leaf or axil. This keeps them bushy.
