Excoecaria cochinchinensis ‘Firestorm’ cascading spectacularly!

Excoecaria cochinchinensis cv. Firestorm (Chinese Croton Firestorm, Variegated Blindness Tree, Jungle Fire Plant)

The variegated foliage of Chinese Croton Firestorm is simply colourful and beautiful in a dramatic and eye-catching way!

We had this remarkable beauty about two years ago. Unfortunately, the plant died six months later for unknown reasons, possibly due to our ignorance about its cultural requirements.

Recently, we came across these plants again, sold at RM15 per pot and just couldn’t resist including it to our garden collection. It seduced us effortlessly!

Absolutely love its impressive cascading habit that seems to dance on windy days to show off its amazing foliage variegation.

Splendid when grown in a hanging pot where the underside of leaves in various hues of maroon are visible and can be fully appreciated.
