Croton info needed

Posted by Energy_Rater_La Louisiana (My Page) on

I rescued a couple of crotons from a local
store this winter. By keeping them inside through
the cold weather they have kept the bulk of their
leaves. I would like to plant them in my yard,
but need to know where the best location would be.
Shade (of which I have little of), partial shade,
(have a little more than full shade), or full sun
(which consitiutes 90% of my yard).
The lady who sold
them to me said they could grow outside as long
as they were covered in the wintertime.

Spring is well on its way here, I have transplanted
a couple of trees which have new leaf buds, the
narcissis and daffodils have bloomed their last,
iris' should be budding out soon. It is such a
joy to clear away the dead growth and see new
growth on my hydrangas (sp?) and see the buds on
the wisteria. My river birch has leaves, but my
purple leaf plum just has leaf buds so far.
Don't you just love this time of year????
Thanks in advance for croton info.
