A nice introduction that is reminiscent of C. o. 'Coralliformis' with its' twisty foliage and coral branches. The difference is in it lemon yellow highlights. It grows 3-6" a year and will be 3-5' tall. Few plants offer the outstanding texture of this plant.

We love using this plant in containers. This brings the twists and turns of the golden foliage up close and personal. Makes a great combination with annuals, perennials, spillers and thrillers.
