Under The Jakfruit Tree

Just a quick note about two popular Croton varieties. Croton is the common name of a shrub that has hundreds of hybrids and cultivars. It is a member of the Euphorbiaceae Family which is a large family of plants, with all having white latex sap. I am only going to mention Codiaeum variegatum ‘Dreadlocks’ and ‘King of Siam’. They both have long twisting cascading leaves of many colors. ‘Dreadlocks’ has more red in the leaves and a splotchy pattern. ‘King of Siam’ is predominately green and yellow, and more well defined spots.

Richard Lyons Nursery currently has both of these cultivars in stock.
