Croton Petra - Joseph's Coat


Native to Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia, Croton plants offer up fiery foliage filled with truly spectacular colour. There is a huge amount of variation in the shape and colours of foliage and as houseplants, they are an easy way to add character to any room. They hold the common name of Joseph's Coat after the amazing technicolored dream coat! This variety has large oval leaves in a distinctive shade of burnt red with green variegations running down each leaf. They'll be happiest in bright direct light to 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.
