Why we love it: Also known as garden croton, this plant has strikingly colourful foliage in yellow and burgundy
Best for: Bright direct light for a few hours a day, but avoid midday sun as this can cause leaf fade.
Easy to kill rating (1 = invincible, 5 = needs extra TLC) : 3 - Damp soil is optimal and care should be taken to avoid dry or wet soil. Temperatures dipping below 10-13 degrees in winter can also contribute to leaf drop.
