Description for Croton Gold Dust (Thin Leaves), Codiaeum Variegatum Punctatum Aureum

Warm tropical colors and exotic lobed leaves make it a beautiful addition to any brightly lit room. It is hard not to notice this bushy, upright plant because of the vividly colored foliage.

The Croton houseplant has leaves splashed with green, orange and red with the veins often yellow, depending on the variety. An evergreen shrub that is dense and compact when young. It can become more rounded and leggy when larger.

The highly variable leaf colors are the strong point of the croton. Some cultivars are more green and yellow, while others can be brilliant mixes of reds, oranges, maroon, and yellows. Leaves are alternate to spiral in the arrangement. Leaf shape is also highly variable with some cultivars being elliptical to oval and others being narrow and linear, while some are even corkscrew. As with many plants in the Euphorbia family, crotons have a very milky sap.
