Whether you decide to grow a croton indoors or out, you will find the task will not be that difficult. This colorful, tropical plant is native to Malaysia and is known for its eye-catching leaves. Though blossoms do exist, they are unnoticeable compared to the foliage. Crotons are relatively hardy plants and in warm, humid locations can be planted directly outdoors. In sections of the country that freeze, it is probably best to grow your crotons inside of containers. Crotons won’t go unnoticed mingling with the landscape or your indoor settings.
