Portulacaria afra ‘Red Stem’ – Elephant Bush (2″ Pot)

$4.99

Portulacaria afra ‘Red Stem’, sometimes called Elephant Bush, is a tall-growing succulent species. It is native to South Africa, where it reaches up to 12′ tall and can be food for elephants! Features chunky, glossy green, paddle-shaped leaves growing on attractive, thick reddish-brown stems. The branches can be trained to grow upright or arching, making them useful in hanging baskets, succulent gardens and containers alike. Over time, the plant will form into an upright shrub with a thick woody trunk. Truly a wonderful, dramatic vertical accent in a succulent garden!

Provide a well-drained soil away from reflected heat. Requires little water once established. Ideal in warm climate landscapes, rock gardens and container gardens, but is especially happy sitting on your windowsill as a houseplant. Protect your PRINCE OF PARADISE™ from frost!
