Mammy Croton (Codiaeum variegatum 'Mammy') will spread its long finger-long leaves to two feet wide and just over 3 ft tall, making it one of the shortest Croton cultivars in this genus. Its intense coloring makes up for any height by giving it morning sun and afternoon shade. The leaves twist and curl, giving it a unique appearance in the garden bed or on a bedside table.
