Portulacaria afra Aurea also known as Yellow Rainbow Bush, Yellow Elephant Food is native to Namibia in Africa where it is a favorite pachyderm snack.
This slow growing low sprawling succulent groundcover has reddish brown stems and pale yellow to light green ¾ inch rounded leaves. The leaves emerge bright yellow with a faint trim of raspberry . The youngest leaves are the brightest ; as thy mature , they deepen to yellow-green as they also acquire a dusting of tiny silver flecks.
The Yellow Elephant Food is a very easy to grow succulent that works as a great bonsai plant, hanging basket or a ground cover in near frost free climates.
Rarely seen lavender-pink flowers may appear if the plant is stressed due to prolonged lack of water. If it does flower it would make a nice contrast against the yellow leaves.
We are offering a well-established plant that is about 6 to 8 inches wide and about 3 inches tall
