Croton socotranus

Perhaps the most common shrub on Socotra. In many places it dominates the landscape with forest-like growth, reaching several meters tall. It varies in appearance from shrubs with small leaves to small trees with larger leaves. White bark is another variation found in higher altitudes.

While traveling around the island you’ll find this species in bloom and thriving in one location, while in another dried out with no flowers.
