My mother-in-law gave me these cuttings from her main plant several months ago and it has been thriving, but I have no idea what it is. The leaves are very unique and the largest leaves measure 6.5 in long by 4 in wide and the plants have woody stems. Thank you in advance for your help!

It is definitely a Croton, but I'm not sure which one. Codiaeum

Thank you for the genus Deebie! Smiling I searched online and found a few photos that look like mine, but no one mentions the species anywhere.

I have a starting point. Anyone know the species or variety?

Croton Oakleaf appears to be the name it's sold under.

Thank you everyone! That is wonderful! Now I have an idea of how to take care of it (and that they are poisonous if ingested). Thank you for your help!! Thank You!
