About Variegated Elephant Bush

Botanical name of Variegated Elephant bush is Portulacaria afra. This plant is believed to bring good fortune to their owners.

 It is a shrubby succulent with mahogany stems and fleshy, green and creamy white foliage. Clusters of small, lavender-pink blooms may appear at branch tips. The elephant bush, native to Africa, is so named because elephants love to eat it.

In its natural environment, variegated elephant bush can reach heights of up to 20 feet (6 m.). However, this slow-growing plant is usually limited to 10 feet (3 m.) or less in the home garden. You can control the size even further by growing this plant in a small container.
