Codiaeum of Peter

The package contains a plant in a plastic pot.

About the plant:
Codiaeum Petra comes from the Euphorbiaceae family. The origin is therefore from Southeast Asia or northern Australia, where these plants grow as bushes with leathery leaves. Codiaeum Petra could also be found under the name croton, but it must not be mistakenly confused with the higher plant classification Crotonae.

Croton leaves are its main pride, because it blooms only rarely and in specific conditions. They have different shapes and colors, they can be green, yellow, brown and red, so they will surely decorate your home in beautiful autumn colors.
