$ 18.00
Size: 4" Pot
Living up to its radiant moniker, Croton 'Sunny Star' is a striking houseplant native to the tropics of Southeast Asia. Its leaves are a visual symphony of vibrant yellows, deep greens, and striking oranges, all punctuated by bold, black veining that brings a touch of drama to this vivacious variety. As a mature plant, the 'Sunny Star' can reach a height and width of about 36 inches, creating a substantial and stunning presence in your indoor garden. When placed in a pot, the Croton 'Sunny Star' grows upright, flaunting its multi-coloured leaves in an upward explosion of botanical brilliance. When given the opportunity to grow outdoors, it can function as an eye-catching border plant, or even a small, decorative hedge. Its growth rate is moderate, and with the right care and conditions, it can even bloom small, white flowers that add a delicate touch to its otherwise flamboyant display. The Croton 'Sunny Star' is also a unique addition to your plant collection because of its impressive adaptability. Despite its tropical origins, it can thrive in a variety of environments. From humid, well-lit bathrooms to sunny windowsills, this plant is flexible and forgiving. However, it does prefer a warmer climate and lots of bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant foliage. In the right conditions, this plant will truly shine – its leaves will transform from a predominantly green palette to a burst of yellows, oranges, and even reds. This transition is often seen as the plant’s response to light – the more light it receives, the more colorful its leaves become. This gives the 'Sunny Star' a dynamic quality, allowing it to change and evolve with your space and the seasons. Adding to its charm, the Croton 'Sunny Star' is not only a feast for the eyes but also an air-purifying champion. It's known to remove toxins from the air, making it a beautiful and beneficial addition to your home or office. In all, the Croton 'Sunny Star' is a true showstopper. With its brilliant foliage, adaptable nature, and air-purifying properties, it brings both beauty and benefits to your space. This plant promises to be a sunny, sparkling star in your collection, captivating you with its tropical charm and vibrant visual display.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
