Croton Excellent

Description

Croton Excellent

This good-looking guy is traditionally used in the garden where his long colourful leaves make a dramatic focal point in a container or straight in the soil. He’s a sure-fire hit in a tropical garden, providing structure and year-round colour.

Excellent differs from his Croton cousins with wider leaves and a more upright form. He’s a stately, more formal plant than say Bush-On-Fire, but still has brightness in those green, red, pink, yellow veined leaves.

With a bit more love and attention, Croton Excellent can be kept as a houseplant to energise the lounge, bathroom or bedroom.

Pop this Croton in free-draining soil and water once he’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 bring year-round colour to a tropical garden border, brighten the boring deck in a container, and enjoy a windowsill in your home.
  • I grow to: I’m large at 1-1.2 metres tall and wide in your garden soil, but will stay smaller in a container.
  • Where to place me: Full sun to part shade outside and filtered, indirect sunlight inside.
  • How far to space me: Give me a metre of elbow room.
  • Soil Conditions: I like moist but free-draining potting mix.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
