USE: For a beautiful, vibrant tropical look, you cannot beat the Croton Petra! This is as close to a rainbow plant as you will find. Thick, shiny leaves are loaded with variegated colors. From green to yellow and orange to red and even purple this plant is a virtual kaleidoscope of color.
CARE: Croton Petras thrive in full to part sun. Indoors, place your Croton near a sunny window or in a sun room. Crotons need watered when the soil begins to dry out. Never let them stand for prolonged periods in soggy soil, they will be very unhappy! Just like some people, Crotons dislike change and you may see some leaves drop off as your Croton adjusts to its new environment. But no worries, it will quickly adapt.
ZONES: Hardy in zones 9-11. A beautiful evergreen shrub for warm tropical locations. Cooler climates can plant in containers for the patio and move inside in the winter to enjoy them year after year.
