Better known as Croton or Joseph’s Coat, this eye-catching shrub boasts vibrant technicolour foliage! The large, oval leaves are stiff and glossy, with a unique mottled pattern in brilliant red, gold and green. Each evergreen leaf is quite unique, creating a superb focal point for a prominent position indoors.

Codiaeum variegatum var. pictum 'Mrs Iceton' is perfect for a warm, humid room – a great choice for a warm conservatory, a bright kitchen or even an indoor swimming pool. With an upright habit, this showy house plant provides maximum impact without taking up too much floor space. Height: 1m (39"). Spread: 50cm (20").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

1 x 21cm potted codiaeum plant (KA2880)

Water freely between spring and autumn using tepid rainwater where possible, and allowing the pot to drain well after each watering. In winter, reduce watering but do not allow the compost to dry out. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Croton appreciates a humid atmosphere - stand it on a tray filled with pebbles and water. As the water evaporates it will increase humidity around the plant.
Codiaeum needs careful placement if it is to thrive. Position in a warm room with a constant temperature above 16C (60F). For the best leaf colour, choose a bright position in good light, but away from the glare of direct sun - an east or west facing window is ideal.
