Notes:

Bought at Mt. Dora FL Flea Market. Grew to large for pot so put in ground. Variegated leaves but purple underneath leaves. Bush type in appearance. Easy plant to grow. In-descriptive tiny flowers possible at top but not decorative. It’s the leaves that are showy. Woody type multiple stocks. Heat tolerant. Semi-sunny location.

    Yes! Thank you Laura735, I checked the web link out and I believe you’re right in that I have a Chinese croton Firestorm. It’s a beautiful plant.

    Maybe something in the Excoecaria genus, possible a cultivar of the Chinese croton (Excoecaria cochinchinensis). Check it out and see if you have a match. Click on image from the included link to enlarge. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Excoecaria_cochinchinensis
