Origin is said to be Malayan. Seen all over South Florida, some grow in the warmest parts of Central Florida as well

This is an accent plant or even a nice hedge when unpruned. Slow growing, not fussy for food or water or soil, the croton is a great tropical. Prune as you wish for form, but basically leave this plant alone. It's rated up to 10 feet, but most are seen below 6 feet tall
