Fall just wouldn't be fall without a croton on the front porch. I found a really nice size one at Lowe's for a great price. I have tried to keep them through the winter in the house, but never had much luck. This one is so pretty that I will try again, but will not shed lots of tears if it does not survive.
I read that it is very easy to propagate, which sparks my curiosity since I love to start new plants.
Crotons need several hours of bright, direct sunlight per day. The more light, the more colorful the leaves will be. Grown in inadequate light, the leaves will be mostly green with yellow veins. (Leaves may also fall off in low light which is what I think happens when I bring them inside.)
Pumpkins are not out yet here, but as soon as they are I will buy 2 to set right beside this pretty plant.
Nothing could be more "fallish".........
