An attractive evergreen shrub with inconspicuous flowers but striking variegated foliage. The habit is rather narrow upright, if pruned it will grow broader.
The common name ‘Mirror plant’ refers to the thick shining leaves. It is frost tender in the greater part of Western Europe and must be treated as a border- or tub plant, but In southern parts of Britain and comparable areas it will survive outside.
It is hardly susceptible to diseases, thriving in any soil-type and preferring a sunny or semi-shaded place. Leaves are egg-shaped to obovate, green with irregular yellow spots.
Their colour changes to orange-red in autumn, staying during winter. A striking effect with green and yellow tints!
Available in Europe.
