Codiaeum variegatum cultivars - Croton

This is one of those plants that I take for granted the way people take wall flowers for granted. Their presence is noticed and then forgotten or relegated to the background. That is, until they decide to bloom. I have never seen flowers on this plant before. I wasn't even looking at them in particular till I almost backed into them while trying to frame a picture of the main gates of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. An unanticipated encounter resulted in these rare shots of croton flowers. Look out for the fruit too.
