Portulacaria afra aurea



Plant Trivia: the common name, “Elephant Food”, comes from the fact that this native of Namibia Africa, is a favorite pachyderm snack plant! We found this yellow form of Portulacaria at the Ruth Bancroft Garden plant sale a few years back, and just love it. It is suitable for pruning into bonsai shapes, or you can just let it grow where it can send branches to cascade in different directions.

Exposure: Sun/Part Shade
Hardiness zone: 10-11

4″ pots
