One tropical plant that is always a colorful addition to a hot garden turns into a star after the summer heat. Crotons (Codiaeum variegatum) are tropical plants that grow outdoors in USDA plant hardiness zones 9b to 11 and as houseplants elsewhere. Their colorful foliage are shot with gold, red, orange, green and even pink depending on the variety. My front porch is lined with beautiful crotons that are really bright and colorful in the fall. I don’t have the beauty of changing leaves like up north, but I love my crotons year round.
Wishing you a bright October day.
