Info

Striking variegated succulent from Africa, can reach 12' in the wild, less in captivity -- possibly 4' tall. Leaves are small, round, and fleshy, green with variegation against dark red stems. Flowers are a bonus, small pink clusters in late spring to early summer. Sun and lean, well-drained soil that dries out some between waterings. A USDA zone 10 plant -- no freezing temperatures -- that does well indoors in good light.
