Plants : crotons

Here is a stunning example of a croton majestic colors, from an Australian based Facebook friend with permission:

Here is a snapshot of the current photos in my Facebook Album.

And here is a growing croton plant from Bacolod City

Interesting facts:
  • Cascarilla (C. eluteria) bark is used to flavour the liqueurs Campari and Vermouth.
  • It has recently been shown in Kenya that Croton nuts, such as those from C. megalocarpus, are a more economical source of biofuel than Jatropha.
