The clusters of small white flowers are a bonus, as this plant is grown primarily for its beautifully variegated leaves and winter stems. In winter the stems are dark red and in spring they begin to become clothed in green leaves with a very prominent yellow margin. The yellow variegation becomes more creamy-yellow with age.
Late spring-early summer flowering. Will grow in sun or semi-shade. 1.8m x 1.8m (6' x 6').
