Begonia and something

I like the large yellow leaves and the red rex by each other, though I don't know the name of this green and yellow thing. I do like. On catwalk

The green and yellow plant is a Croton (Codiaeum variegatum). I have these shrubs growing outside in the ground on my property in San Diego, CA.

Thanks delonix. I think somewhere deep inside I knew croton, but I've seen some labelled that look nothing like this. I do wish I could get more yellow and red on the leaves, but it'll come I suppose. Usually justs needs more light.

Greenthumb, Crotons must have strong light inside the house. In stronger light the leaves will become more red and brighter yellow.

Also, there are hundreds of forms of crotons with many different types of variegation.
