Description

The Croton Oak Leave features large, green leaves with brightly coloured veins. Its name comes from its similarity to an oak tree, and the leathery appearance of the leaf creates an astonishing and unusual appearance. You can expect to see a mix of colors in this plant’s leaf veins including, red, orange, yellow, and occasionally pink to purple. 

The Crotons are small, beautiful and unique shrubs that typically stay small to medium-sized, with an average height of 900cm. It has a slow growth rate that can take several years to reach its full size. Crotons are native to the tropical regions of Africa and Asia, so it prefers warm, humid climates. Croton plants require a minimum of four hours of sun exposure per day. Light exposure should be bright but indirect. Not enough sun will cause the leaves to lack variegation.
