The flowers are insignificant but the foliage comes in a wide variety of brightly splashed or spotted, smooth, ruffled or twisted shapes. Croton ‘Gold Dust’ is a compact plant with elliptical to oval leaves which are medium green and liberally dusted with paint-like specks of yellow. Mature crotons are "V" shaped.
Planting & Care
Plant type: An evergreen shrub of medium height (1.5 – 3 meters), with ornamental foliage and originated from South India, Ceylon and Malaya.
Light: Grows best in full sun to achieve best leaf color, but can tolerate semi-shade with dappled sunshine.
Moisture: Requires regular watering with lots of water.
Soil: It’s adaptable to a wide range of soils but must have good aeration and be well-drained! Not too excessive drainage though, otherwise it will wilt rapidly if too dry. Croton can be grown in containers or ground.
