Croton Bush on Fire

The original burning bush!

Croton Bush-on-Fire is awash with red, orange, gold and purple tones that lift a dull area of your home or garden into another world of colour.

This beauty is traditionally used in the garden where its long colourful leaves make a dramatic focal point in a container or straight in the soil. It’s a sure-fire hit in a tropical garden, providing some structure and year-round colour.

With a bit more love and attention Bush-on-Fire can be kept as a houseplant to energise the lounge, bathroom or bedroom but I like loads of light. This is an indoor plant that will add some colour to your home.

Pop this Croton in free-draining soil and water once it's gone dry. The more bright but indirect light you can give this guy the happier and more colourful he’ll become.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I make a stunning focal point in the garden. Why not create a low-growing multi-coloured hedge? I also rock a pot on the deck and create a backbone in a tropical style garden. Indoors, I can lighten your life with my pretty foliage.

  • I grow to: I’m compact at 30cms by 30cms

  • Where to place me: Outside I like full sun to part shade and indoors I like bright but indirect light.

  • How far to space me: Give me 30cms of room please.

  • Soil Conditions: I’m a tropical guy that gets thirsty, so I need free-draining soil or potting mix that’s watered when it starts to dry out.

  • Watering conditions: I am from the tropics and can get thirsty, water me when my soil is dry to touch
