As mentioned in my last thread...here we go with photos of eight CROTON VARIETIES (both entire plant and close-up) from my garden. Although I enjoy them no matter how they’re displayed (except harshly pruned as a hedge), I am partial to the tropical style of exhibit. I’m very jealous of my CROTONS therefore I try not to display them with competing bright colored plants in front of, behind or along side of them. The types of plants I normally use for this job are ferns, philodendrons, palms or green cordylines, etc. 1) JOHANNIS…a favorite of my wife and simply elegant. 2) JOHANNIS…a closer look. Plenty of long and interrupted leaves…a very graceful cultivar in any garden. 3) IRENE KINGSLEY aka SATAN…Aware of the IRENE KINGSLEY vs SATAN debate I planted the two next to each other. 4) IRENE KINGSLEY aka SATAN…It took awhile but the trident shaped leaf on the left (see foto #3) eventually morphed into the standard IRENE KINGSLEY on the right.
