check our 2021 feb. & march botanical garden plant sale schedule!
Our smaller size plants are grown in one-gallon, or 6-inch containers--about as heavy as we'd dare ship. These small one-gallon--plants range in price from $33. to $43., which includes shipping within the continental U.S. Plants shipping West of the Mississippi are assessed an additional $4.00 and those to Hawaii would be slightly more.
We try to ship on Mondays and Tuesdays so plants reach their destination by week's end. Please contact us for current availability, exact pricing, and shipping information/costs.
The bulk of what we offer at seasonal Florida plant sales, and in our Nursery, are Crotons grown in 3-gallon/8" and 10" containers. These larger (three-gallon) plants average $16. to $24.
Smaller, 6" potted plants --offered for sale with shipping charges included below-- can also be purchased at our Vero Beach nursery for much, much less than prices quoted here.
Our 2021 Spring Show Schedule Section lists a number of plant sales here in Florida in which we are scheduled to participate during Feb. and March 2021.

This dwarf Croton does well in part sun, and can tolerate full sun.
Corkscrew leaves green, yellow and vivid pink. One of the few Crotons with pink leaves and excels in full sun (will do fine in part sun).
Long green blades with yellow speckles and polkadots. One of the few Crotons that will do well in shade or full sun.
In sun this Croton turns yellow and orange; in gentle sun or part-shade the leaves turn a vivid rose color.
A.F.D. 5 or Fantasia grows fast and is partial to lots of sun but will look lovely if it gets indirect light.
Gold Dust turns very yellow in sun; retains yellow polka dots in shade.
Has very unusual, 'interrupted' leaf: Both lobes are attached by the mid vein or leaf rib.
The Bell = the smaller of the 2 lobes.
Long green, corkscrew leaves spotted pink and white. Likes morning sun, can tolerate full shade.
Like all Crotons, leaves are born green, then turn yellow, then orange. Older plant stems are carmine red.
Ruffled edges like a scalloped piecrust give this sun-loving Croton one of its many, and most apropos name.
Pink and creamy white lobed leaves are typical of Crotons that thrive in gentle sun, or indirect light.
Corkscrew leaves sprout up green then turn shades of yellow, orange, red and black. Absolutely loves the Sun.
Sun-loving Mango was named for the ripe tropical fruit because the "mature" plant eventually displays all the same gorgeous hot yellows and oranges framed in black.
A classic Croton that thrives in morning or gentle sun and dappled light that streams through the trees. Grows quickly.
Leaves display both "stripes" and dots.
Quite possibly the loveliest Shade Croton there is. Can get by with indirect light and no more than 3 hours of gentle sun.
Leaves range from bright pink to orange depending on how much sun it gets.
Round leaves - Thailand's contribution to Crotons, adorn this unusual Croton, one of the few that will grow and do well in the United States. Partial to Sun but not too much.
Leaf patterns have been described as mind-blowing on this wonderful Croton that thrives in strong afternoon Sun.
Sunny Star is a cheerful, low-maintenance Croton that gets more yellow as it gets more Sun. Good for a hedge.
I've seen people stand beside the plant running a hand through its hair-thin leaves while deep in conversation! This dwarf Croton does like the Sun but not cold (starts to shiver in the 40's) and is probably happiest growing to its max. of 18 inches in a pot.
In strong light, the wavy yellow leaves turn orange with a bright red mid rib.
Long corkscrew leaves start out green then turn yellow, orange and red. Likes a lot of Sun; sensative to cold.
Loves as much sun as it can get. In strong sun leaves turn bright yellows, orange, and eventually red.
