Codiaeum variegatum, more commonly known as croton, is an evergreen native to Malaysia and islands in the western Pacific. The flowers are insignificant but the foliage comes in a wide variety of brightly splashed or spotted, smooth, ruffled or twisted shapes. Curly Boy has twisting, oblong leaves arranged spirally around the stem. They are dark green with a red to purple overlay, yellow to orange “paint spots” and yellow midribs. Mature crotons are "V" shaped.
Crotons grow best in well-drained soil and partial shade. Too much sun will bleach the color out of the leaves and too little will cause the leaves to be more green. Crotons can be pruned by hand but are ugly sheared. Crotons are frequently grown as houseplants in colder climates and in the landscape in frost-free regions.
