    Still struggling to get my plants in the ground. Can anyone tell me the preferred lighting for these to look great? Thanks.:D

    Ana,

    I have all 3 growing in the yard and all of them really don't see any direct sun. And they look pretty good. But I'm sure they'll all take a little sun and still look great. Hope to see some pictures.

    Anna - I've got all three, and none get direct sun except for Lt. Paget who gets an hour or two depending on the season. All three look fine.

    Thanks, Jeff and Phil. I don't know why I have the inclination to push my crotons to get as much sun as they'll tolerate. Even though I've heard from everyone here that less is sometimes better to get less washing out of colors. Too many years of growing perennials, I guess. It just seems natural to me that especially yellow and green crotons should require more light to color up. I'm still struggling with where to put them that won't get at least a few hours of sun.
