It's a croton (Codiaeum variegatum); very common also in Florida and easily propagated from cuttings.

Yes, show close-ups!

I agree, it's a croton. There a very wide range of foliage available in these - colours and shapes. They're very hardy plants and don't really need looking after. Some people are avid collectors.
