Our smaller size plants grown in one-gallon, or 6-inch containers--are about as heavy as we'd dare ship. These small, one-gallon plants range in price from $32. to $49., which includes shipping within the continental United States. Plants shipping West of the Mississippi are assessed an additional $8.00 and those to Hawaii would be slightly more.
TO ORDER, PLEASE CALL or TEXT MARK PETERS 1-772-240-2811.
We ship Mondays and Tuesdays so plants reach their destination by week's end. Please contact us for the most up-to-date 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 range from $18. to $27.
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 2022 Spring and Fall Show Schedules will be posted in the Calendar Section.
Until further notice, the Nursery is open every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. ~ No Appointment Necessary. Monday through Friday we open our nursery for private, call-ahead or text-ahead appointments. We have two large shade houses filled with Crotons and Hawaiian Ti plants. With 2 to 3 of us (at most) ever working here, there is plenty of space to move around without violating the six-foot rule. During check-out PPE can be utilized.
To set-up an appointment for Monday to Friday, please call or text ahead of time:
(772) 240-2811. Currently we have more than 30 Croton and 30 Hawaiian Ti (Cordyline) varieties available.
The Palmpedia/Tropiscape link below allows you to consult the excellent and comprehensive A-Z Croton Encyclopedia loaded with individual photographs of, and other errata on hundreds of cultivars.
Variegated, Ilex (holly) like) leaves with green, grey-green, and ivory white colouring. A shade lover that easily "sports" --on the very same plant sometimes--its sister varieties: 'Tamara,' grey-green and creamy yellow, or 'Lucia,' pure ivory white leaves with an occasional dusting of tiny grey-green dots. Also known by some as 'Andrew.'
This distinctive Croton has "interrupted leaves." Two long thin lobes separated by the leaf's rib. The rib extends off the distal lobe and sprouts a third lobe -- more like a little Chinese straw hat-like bell. In the sun, the reverse side of the leaves turn purple. Once a very common croton, this variety is now no longer produced commercially.
Semi-oakleaf shaped, bright red leaves make for a very seductive sun-lover. Tends to grow straight and up -- good as a tall back-of-the-border garden choice or for hiding the unsightly. A vigorous grower that responds well to being cut back as necessary.
This gentle sun lover has oakleaf shaped leaves born green but soon get speckles and spackles of pale yellow, which are shortly soon topped by pink!
A very old cultivar, given a Latin name in the 1700's to convey some gravitas. In the 1950's it was known as 'Canned Sunshine.' A vigorous grower that thrives in blazing sun. In strong light, the wavy yellow leaves turn orange with a bright red mid rib.
This dwarf Croton does well in part sun, and can tolerate full sun.
Loves as much sun as it can get. In strong sun leaves turn bright yellows, orange, and eventually red.
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 corkscrew leaves start out green then turn yellow, orange and red. Likes a lot of Sun; sensitive to cold.
Long green blades with yellow speckles and polkadots. One of the few Crotons that will do well in shade or full sun.
In strong Sun, this Croton turns yellow, then different shades of orange, and orange-red. In part-shade the leaves turn a vivid rose color.
Excellente leaves turn pink and coral in partial or gentler Sun. Leaves are 'born' green, then turn yellow and lastly coral and vivid pink.
Fantasia has distinctive fishbone markings on its leaves. It grows fast and is partial to lots of sun but will also look lovely if it gets partial sun or indirect light.
Frequently sold as ‘Zanzibar’ substitute. Long, thin dark green leaves, growing in ribbons of satiny yellow, orange and red. . Prefers to be shaded from strong Summer mid-day sun.
Color patterns have been described as myriad as a star studded sky, on this wonderful Croton that thrives in strong afternoon Sun. Leaves end up red with small spots.
Has very unusual, 'interrupted' leaves. Both lobes are attached by the mid vein or leaf rib. The small lobe at the end is the "bell."
Small green leaves with yellow speckles. In full sun sun leaves will tend to turn completely yellow.
Long corkscrew leaves spotted pink and white. Likes morning sun, can tolerate full shade.
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 as the ripe fruit, framed in black.
A classic Croton that thrives in morning or gentle sun and dappled light that streams through the trees. Grows quickly.
His leaves display both "stripes" and dots.
Distinctive fishbone markings make this quite possibly the loveliest shade Croton there is. Can get by with indirect light and no more than 3 hours of gentle sun.
Short, straight, narrow leaves with a thick midvein of yellow or orange color that eventually saturates the entire leaf.
Sun loving dwarf grower.
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.
Ruffled edges like a scalloped piecrust give this sun-loving Croton one of its many, and most apropos names.
Short, thin yellow-speckled leaves make up this dwarf Croton that prefers morning sun. Great choice for terra cotta pots and planters.
Long green leaves turn amber, red then red and black. To color up spectacularly, the plant needs as much strong Summer sun as it can get.
Small-leaved 'Sunny Star' grows quickly with a yellow midrib. The more Sun, the more yellow.
This beauty--like her sister, pink Mrs. Iceton-- does not "color-up" like other Crotons. Her lovely green leaves get yellow pale yellow blushing, eventually turning a creamy white. Happiest in gentle morning/late summer day sun or dappled light that streams through the trees. Grows quickly.
Almond shape leaves somewhat bigger than those of the orange-red Petra. Known for its very bright ripe banana yellow. Happy in full sun or shade.
