Plant Origins


Plant Bio

The Croton Plant is a tropical euphorbia in the family Euphorbiaceae. Although this plant was once classified as Croton variegatum, it has been reclassified as Codiaeum variegatum. However, the plant had already been in cultivation, and the old name sticks as the common name. As per its native environment, after a hard rain, the tropical sun dries it out nicely, and it prefers to be cared for in that way. The color pigments of the leaves are actually a form of variegation that protects the plant from the harsh equatorial sun. Ironically, the plant is programmed to produce those pigments no matter what, and therefore needs the sun to live. 'Gold Dust' is a cultivar selected for speckled yellow foliage.

Don't be afraid of color.
