An impressive array of vividly coloured leaves that are simply dazzling. The Passion Petra (aka Croton Petra) is easy to distinguish with its upright stature and textured foliage with greens, oranges and reds and strains of yellow. This visual masterpiece is another reminder of our planet's natural beauty.
