The genus codiaeum generally encompasses the family of crotons, which vary wildly in color, shape and position. From dazzling combinations of green, yellow and shades of red on an oval leaf like 'Petra', to the elongated, speckled burgundies of 'Johanna Coppinger', this genus provides a pop of color to many landscapes. Most resemble shrubs in terms of size and position ornamentally, and rarely exceed 5 feet in height. Some species cluster and widen as they growth while others reach up with delicate, thin leaves. This versatile genus can complement any landscape aesthetic with its bright variation!
