Teen, your Croton is a beauty. Colors don't resemble the standard Codiaeum variegatum. Something's different.
I like yours better. Toni

I got one similar to that. The first lot of new leaves were more green. Then newer ones started to get a bit more yellow in them. Now the red/pink is coming back as well. I was quite disappointed when the new leaves started coming out green. Now it looks like it'll be back to the colours I originally bought it for.

that's a croton 'franklin rooseevelt'.
my mother has a 5 year old plant with another companion croton in a dinky pot that's never re-potted.
(grows like a weed here)

I got mine from Bunnings. It was labelled "Croton" along with all the other Crotons. Bunnings are good like that, LOL.

teen, I think I stumbled on your croton by looking for smth else. I think it's called 'magnificent'.
http://www.triadplantco.com, look at crotons in 'plant pictures'.
