Codiaeum variegatum - Croton

Codiaeum variegatum - Croton

My Croton has grown very well this year and continues to put out growth and flowers. It looked pretty bad over the last year until it was transplanted into a larger pot. Photo taken December 6, 2020.

That is one huge croton, Delonix. Looks healthy and attractive.

Thanks! It looked very strangely and sparse for a year. I knew it needed a new pot for over a year. When I transplanted it back in June it took off growing again.

I think I purchased this plant back in 2009.

Very valuable plant. They are rarely if ever sold at that size..and so getting one from Florida or Hawaii here? Just imagine the cost.

Yes, it’s grown pretty big. I’ve seen taller ones outside in the ground in San Diego. However, very rarely do you see them more than 6’ tall here.

A lovely looking plant! Here in the UK they are quite small plants that have to be grown indoors.

Thank you. Even here in San Diego’s very mild subtropical climate it doesn’t thrive like in South Florida and Hawai’i hot tropical climate.
