Portulacaria afra

Elephant Bush, Dwarf Jade Plant, Porkbush and Spekboom

Portulacaria afra

Few garden designers would recommend the Portulacaria Afra as a hedging plant, but this evergreen succulent is indeed the dream plant of any hasty hedge grower with a limited budget and living in a very hot climate.

You can simply stick un-rooted pieces in stony, shallow soil and in no time at all they will make roots and grow quickly. Adult height: 4 – 5m.
