Portulacaria afra f. variegata, is a slow to moderate growing, attractive succulent shrub. It has small round cream and green coloured leaves on thick reddish brown stems. It has tiny, pink flowers that bloom in summer, however, not often seen unless fully sun stressed.

It's native habitat is the dry flatlands and rocky slopes of the South African savanna. Elephants enjoy the juicy, succulent leaves, giving it the common names of Elephant's Bush and Elephant's Food.

A very hardy plant, they are drought tolerant and can survive in full sun. They will tolerate low temperatures and the occasional light frost, as long as they are kept dry.

Plant in a very well draining mix and water sparingly once established
