Other common names you may hear are:

  • Mammy Croton
  • Mamey Croton
  • Croton Mamey
  • Codiaeum variegatum (var-ee-GAY-tum)

Codiaeum is a reasonably small genus containing about seventeen species of small evergreen trees and shrubs hailing from Northwestern Oceana and Southeast South East Asia.

Mammy Croton leaves need bright but indirect light for them to properly show off their hues of color. Little or no light will turn the leaves green and dull while on the other end striking a good balance for the light exposure gives it an extremely different outcome.

Its leaves are broad, and depending on the variety, bright yellow, red, green, purple and brown colors. To add to its heavily veined colorful leaves, the Mammy Croton has tiny yellowish female flowers with no petals and white male flowers, which show off during Autumn.
