Q.Is my fantasy croton dead

Zone 32583 | Anonymous added on February 25, 2020 | Answered

I planted a fantasy croton outdoors last spring it did great. When the cold weather came it dropped all of its leaves. Now everything else in the garden is growing and flowering again except the croton. Is it dead?

It gets below freezing in your zone 8b, so a croton should not be left outside during winter. They are tropical plants and can't tolerate temperatures below 60 degrees F. Unfortunately, yours probably froze. In the future, try keeping it in a container to bring inside during winter.
