Description: Portulacaria afra f. variegata (Rainbow Bush) is a popular and highly adaptable variegated form with creamy-yellow mottled leaves. It looks rather like a small jade plant with nearly horizontally branches that sprawl on the soil. It is sometimes confused with Crassula ovata (Jade plant) because the plants look alike, but portulacaria leaves are smaller and the stems are wiry. Cascading carefully pruned Portulacaria afra f. variegata resemble living sculpture when displayed on a pedestal. Tiny pink flowers appear in summer
