Shade favoring Crotons




Several varieties have a preference for being more shaded than sun-drenched. These varieties are most content receiving 2 to 4 hours of direct (weaker) sunlight—in the morning sun of an Northern or Eastern exposure, or a late Western exposure—after 3pm in the Summer.  These cultivars are almost always most contented to sit in the dappled shade of spreading oaks, etc., provided the canopy has some holes and isn’t solidly overgrown and, providing there’s decent drainage:
