2. Motley king codiaum
It is difficult to find a plant that would more embody the concept of "multicolor" than the strict, prim and even severe in lines and silhouettes variegated codiaeum (Codiaeum variegatum), formerly known as Croton variegated. But this is a bushy plant with huge leaves strictly in everything except the color palette, mixing at least four different tones.
The color scheme of the codiaum is really enviably diverse and magnificently multicolored. But not in terms of the presence of a larger number of varieties and varieties with different colors, but quite the opposite: for this plant, and in the most modest basic form, multicolor is characteristic. The rich dark base color of the codiaum plates is always combined with light - whitish, cream or yellow, pink or red - veins and a variety of patterns of spots and specks and soft "erosion". Codiemum leaves combine green and all variations of the warm tones of the spectrum, from yellow to red, including a variety of oranges, purples and pinks, all bright, clean and trendy.
Codiaum is a representative of indoor shrubs with evergreen foliage. Reaching a height of 50 cm to 2 meters or more, it forms a strict crown of large leaves and rather powerful trunks, which are gradually exposed from below. Silhouettes of codiaums more and more resemble a tree with age, although modern varieties are very bushy.
The leathery, glossy, large leaves of the codiaum are by far the most attractive part of the plant. Widely elongated, tongue-shaped or corkscrew-shaped, they can resemble oak leaves in silhouette, be almost lanceolate, back ovoid or oval. But whatever the shape of the codiaum leaves, their color is equally beautiful. The veins on the surface are always light. They stand out brightly and adorn greenery no less than patterns and spots. Colors on the leaves of codiaum do not appear immediately, most often young leaves are just green and only gradually turn purple and yellow-orange.
Under indoor conditions, codiaums are not allowed to bloom, breaking off the "fluffy" yellowish-white flowers and inflorescences as early as possible.
Codiaums are not the most unpretentious, but still quite simple plants to grow. They love high humidity and require watering to maintain stable soil moisture. But on the other hand, codiaums grow equally well in a bright place and in partial shade, they need stable room temperatures literally all year round.
The role of codiaum in the interior:
- large accents;
- in solo parts;
- like color spots;
- for structuring space;
- as an accompaniment to large pieces of furniture.
Codiaum can be used for any premises, except for children's rooms (milky juice contains poisonous compounds). This plant looks best in modern interiors and is perfect for offices and greenhouses.
Varietal variety of codiaums: old plant varieties require difficult conditions and are more suitable for flower showcases, all modern varieties of codiaums are much less whimsical; there are small and large-leaved variations, different colors, although there are very few varieties and forms. Noteworthy:
- codiaum variety "Excelent" with arched leaves, in which yellow veins are combined with a green-yellow base color of the upper leaves and a purple-violet tone at the bottom of the crown;
- wavy-leaved variety of codiaum "Mammy" with a variety of red-pink and green-red leaves;
- Codiaum "Mrs. Aiston" with green at first, then green-cream, then covered with a variety of yellow-pink-red leaves;
- magnificent codiaum "Aiston red", in which the foliage is colored in yellow-green, pink and ink tones, and other cultivars of this magnificent plant.
