Hooghly Today : Codiaeum variegatum (L.) A.H.L. Juss. (var.2): ID help :-



Thank you Sir, two more, recorded today at another place.


Codiaeum variegatum (L.) A.H.L. Juss. has many cultivars, we have more than 80 different varieties in Tropical botanic Garden and research institute, Palode, Kerala.


Thank you Sir for the info. I have seen a few more varieties and now i am sure that those are too Codiaeum variegatum.

Thanks for the post. I got confused with the name. Was knowing it as Croton variegatus. Here is my close up of the flower taken from Mahabaleshwar hotel garden in Dec 12. A favourite for gardens due to beautiful foliage.


Forgot to mention for the nice display of male as well as female flowers.
