Croton

Codiaeum variegatum Blume var. pictum

CODE-ee-um  very-ah-GATE-um

EuphorbiaceaeCodiaeum variegatum

Explanation of name: According to BA1, the generic name probably comes from Greek for head in reference to the use of the leaves in wreaths. Variegatum means variegated.

Natural range: Tropical Pacific.

Recognition: Shrubs with varied brightly colored, stiff, waxy leaves, naturally green but in cultivation with bright patterns of reds and yellows from viral infections. The shapes and sizes are highly variable, with the leaves often irregular in outline and along the margins, sometimes twisted. The cultivars are beyond counting.

Landscape uses: One of the most-used landscaping selections in hot climates. A tough colorful shrub of broad tolerances, an easy source of bright year-round foolproof color. Harmonizing the coarse glossy colorful leaves with other plantings is a challenge. For a Florida-centric book on Crotons, with photos of cultivars see BR3.
