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 Fall & 2023 Spring Show Schedules will be posted in the Calendar Section.

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.
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. Sun
This small leaf Croton does well in part sun, and can tolerate full Sun.
Semi oak leaf shape, prefers gentle Sun, such as morning sun up until noon, or late summer afternoon Sun, after 4:30 p.m. In direct gentle Sun or planted under trees with dappled light, it produces lovely pink and white leaves.
Variegated, Ilex (holly-like) leaves with green, grey-green, and ivory white coloring. 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.'
Long, medium-narrow foliage, heavily spotted yellow. One of the few Crotons that is equally comfortable growing in either complete shade or total Sun. In 100% Sun, many leaves will turn completely yellow.
Large, tri-lobed leaves with an elongated center lobe. New growth is vertical with later growth becoming more horizontal. New leaves appear apple green with yellow veining, which soon turns carmine red. In morning/late afternoon (gentle) Sun plants grow beautiful coral and pink; in strong Sun, it colors up orange and red.
Simple semi-oak leaf with dramatic yellow, orange and red venation. Likes full Sun. Hybridized in Italy. A.F.D. stands for the 1970's Azienda Floreale Diem nursery.
From 1908, Britain. This lovely trident-shaped bright green leaf has a big golden-yellow splash in the center. Grows vigorously, and prefers to be shaded from the day's fiercest summer Sun. Known as 'Brazil' in the trade due to its popularity in that country.
Tri-lobed leaf shape with extended center lobe. Green with herringbone patterned wide yellow center and side veins, and a red spine. Mature coloring depends on amount of Sun. Varies from strawberry pinks in shady conditions to peachy orange-red with more Sun. Alternate spiral arrangement of leaf growth suggests a full and voluminous spray.
Small green leaves with yellow speckles. In full sun sun leaves will tend to turn completely yellow.
Wavy, twisty. long shiny green strappy leaves crossed with wide bands of pearl white. Shrubs look like ribbons blowing in the breeze. Prefers to be shaded from the hottest Sun of a summer's day.
One of the largest, and reddest of all Crotons! A tri-lobed leaf with extended center lobe--a very distinctive oak leaf shape. Leaves are "born" green, quickly progress through yellow to red. Enjoys lots of Sun.
Tightly coiled , long leaves spotted pink, white, and later, purple. A pendulous grower that appears to cascade down. Looks lovely in a pedestal urn. Prefers gentle direct Sun: Morning Sun to noon or after 4:30 p.m. in summer, or in dappled sun through trees all day.
Short, straight, narrow leaves with a thick midvein of yellow or orange color that eventually saturates the entire leaf.
Sun loving dwarf grower.
Beautiful gently bow-curved leaves with slightly undulate margins make this pale yellow herringbone and green Croton a stunner. Rich creamy yellow-white veining and midrib against cypress green background. Prefers gentle direct Sun: morning until noon and summer afternoons after 4:30 p.m.
A somewhat kite shaped, or wide quadrilateral leaf splashed with pale yellow that soon turns white, and pink. Prefers gentle Sun: mornings until noon, summer afternoons after 4:30 p.m., or all day in dappled light through trees.
Corkscrew leaves sprout up green then turn shades of yellow, orange, red and black. Absolutely loves the Sun.
Spear shape leaves turn canary yellow and green. Very slowly, green turns to a dark raisin color; yellow deepens to amber, becomes carrot orange, and the areas of color shrink to the midrib and surrounding area. An unhurried grower that loves the Sun.
From Polynesia to Britain in 1875, the original name was 'Appendiculatum.' This Croton has very unusual "interrupted" leaves. Three leaf lobes are connected by the threadlike midrib. The third lobe at the end sticks out like a little Chinese hat-like bell. Reverse side of leaves often turn purple. Prefers gentle direct Sun, or dappled light through overhead trees.
Like a delicate opaque origami, its small elliptical leaves have a slightly creased surface, and are produced chartreuse green but soon suffused canary yellow that overspreads the leaf, then deepening to pale peach ultimately becoming rosy pink. Mature leaves develop a true black shading around the edges. A fast grower that prefers gentle direct Sun: Mornings until noon, summer afternoons after 4:30 p.m., or all day dappled light through trees.
A long 10" narrowish leaf-- 2" wide, striped and pokadotted--veined and spotted.
Another Italian hybridized Croton from the now-defunct Azienda Floreale Diem nursery. A success after many attempts to create a Croton that would more easily keep its color and thrive as a houseplant. Named for his daughter by the nursery manager.
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 18-24 inches in a pot.
Ruffled edges like a scalloped piecrust give this sun-loving Croton one of its many, and most apropos names. Green turns to bright red and yellow. Older leaves turn red and exhibit dark streaks. Enjoys strong afternoon summer Sun. At one time extensively used at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach.
Extra large, deep cut lobed oakleaf shape leaf. Starts out mostly vivid yellow adding pink blotches as it matures. Prefers gentle direct Sun: Mornings until noon, after 4:30 p.m. in summer, or all day dappled light through trees.
Mainly short leaves turned under like a ram's horn. On many leaves the rib and veins turn yellow especially when exposed to gentle direct Sun. Sadly, like so many others, these cultivars are no longer produced commercially.
Narrow pink, cream, and red leaves with super strong, tightly wound curls. Likes full Sun.
The most robust Thai hybrid Croton in U.S. cultivation, mainly because of its vigor. Combination of narrow, curly, and round, circular leaves. Progression of green, yellow, orange and red coloring. Prefers direct gentle Sun: mornings until noon, after 4:30 p.m. in summer, and all day dappled sun through overhead tree leaves.
Long, linear leaves. Like its namesake leaves start out green, then turn yellow amber, and finally red. Oldest leaves are very dark red. Finest coloring is achieved when exposed to high amounts of direct Sunlight.
Lives up to its cheery name with medium length linear leaves born green but soon turning vivid yellow. A slow grower happy in just about any light.
This gentle Sun lover has oakleaf shaped leaves born green but soon gets speckles and spackles of pale yellow, which are soon topped with pink! An unusual Croton hybridized by Rudy Bachman.
This beauty--like her sister, pink Mrs. Iceton-- does not "color-up" like other Crotons. Her lovely green leaves are suffused with pale yellow, eventually becoming 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.
