Portulacaria afra minima (Dwarf Elephant Food)


This new selection of Elephant Food makes a great groundcover! Plants never grow above 1 foot tall, and are often even more prostrate. This little succulent has done quite well for us in the sun and shade. Good selection for containers or in the ground, Dwarf Elephant Food requires very little irrigation once established, usually just some supplemental water through the dry summer season.
