The Portulacaria 'Rainbow Elephant Bush' is a vibrant and eye-catching houseplant, celebrated for its multicolored foliage in shades of green, pink, and cream. Exhibiting a shrubby and well-branched growth habit, the stems of this plant are adorned with small, rounded leaves, creating a lush and dense appearance. Under ideal conditions, it can reach a mature height of approximately 8-15 feet outdoors, but remains more compact when cultivated indoors.
