Croton - Mammy


Native to Australia, Indonesia, and Malaysia, Croton plants are admired for their beautiful, multi-coloured foliage. The Croton Mammy is an evergreen shrub growing to 3-8 feet tall and has large, thick, leathery, shiny evergreen leaves which are alternately arranged. Its leaves are broad, and depending on the variety, bright yellow, red, green, purple and brown colors. They'll be happiest in bright direct light, as this helps mimic their native Oceanic habitat.

Full Sunlight: A plant that needs full sun needs at least 6 hours of direct sunlight every day to thrive. To find this place in your home, look for a sun-drenched site, like a south facing window.
