Succulents are water retaining plants that can adapt to harsh dry environments. They are extremely easy to care for and are available in variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Their resilient nature makes them perfect for indoor terrariums as well as outdoor environments.
The Elephant Bush, or Portulacaria afra, is a South African succulent that, true to its name, can grow into a shrub or hedge shape. Also adapts well to hanging planters. A slow grower, the Elephant Bush does well in small containers and can be easily trimmed or pinched back to keep a small size. Often mistaken for the similar looking Jade Plant, it has near identical growth patterns and care as the Jade. Succulent arrives in a 4" growers pot ready for potting.
