|I knew that croton had to be someone in the south. I've loved them all my life.|
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

|Beautiful colors on that one! They're houseplants here, too, but I never was able to keep them from dropping leaves.|

|Great banner, thanks!|
My Crotons are rescue plants - I grab them up (with permission) when the local nurseries dump them at end of season.
They then become 'snowbirds', living half the year in my Southern garden, the other half inside my house protected from the cold.

| Thank you all for the 's & 's... |
I do love this plant! In my zone 9a…It looks tattered, and a bit ratty in the Winter, and it does receive protection on the coldest of nights, but come Spring, it rebounds and flourishes! They really brighten the landscape!
