Corkscrew Crotons are great for adding color!

These corkscrew crotons are beautiful and a great way to add some color to your landscape beds.  They are very easy to maintain and require little upkeep.  Just remember to cover if there is a freeze, which I don’t think we will have to worry about anymore!
