Angel Wing Croton

Angel Wing Croton

My Angel Wing croton is doing very well. It has constantly grown since I transplanted it into a larger pot last year. Photo taken July 3, 2021.

This is a striking plant! Those leaves are so attractive too. I’m pleased it transplanted well for you.

The only announcement I got was for the Jacaranda photo. Looks like i missed few photos.
The Angel Wing looks great. Other than Len of the palm board not many people posting Crotons.
My 3+ year old Croton is never going to make it through next winter. Just as I've read about 'Petra' in California..some survive,revive a little in summer..but slowly fade. On the plus side,my Bottle palm has grown after its first winter outside.

Thanks Kate123! It’s been in this spot for probably 7 or 8 years. It seems to like this location. Sometimes it gets a little neglected, though.

Crotons are pretty much not grown outdoors in the SF Bay Area. They just can’t deal with the cool daytime weather in winter.

That’s surprising your Bottle palm survived outside during winter. That’s a very tropical palm which despises even a little bit of cool weather. I just posted a pic of a 12 to 14 foot bottle palm in Ocean Beach here. It looks very good. I know it’s been in the ground for at least 12 year and has probably been in the ground much longer.
