Croton “Mrs Iceton” is an upright plant with thick leathery leaves that vary widely in colour, shape and size. Typical leaves are shades of yellow, pink and red which may appear in distinctly coloured veins or as spots and blotches. This is a plant from the warm, humid tropics and must be kept in warm conditions (no lower than 15C, otherwise the leaves may turn brown and fall off)
Also known as Codiaeum variegatum, this plant can grow up over a metre in height and in the tropics it is often used as a hedge.
The variety ‘Mrs Iceton’ has beautiful shades of pastel pink and yellow on its leaves and is certainly eye-catching.
The plant has toxic leaves and seeds, and the sap may be irritating. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots.
