Croton

 

Crotons are perfect for a tropical look in frost-free landscape. This upright, woody-based perennial has thick, oval to linear, large leathery leaves, often deeply lobed. Leaves vary in color, usually green, yellow, red, purple, bronze, pink, or almost any combination of these colors and may follow the veins, margins, or appear as blotches on the leaf. Crotons make attractive hedges, container plants, or garden focal points where their striking foliage can be appreciated
