Variegated Tapioca

You won’t find a more brilliantly shaded foliage plant for your landscape. Variegated tapioca is an ornamental landscape plant that stands up to heat, drought and most other forms of abuse. It grows to 4 to 5 feet tall and 3 to 4 feet wide, so it’s the perfect plant for the back of a sunny landscape color bed. Use it alongside firebush (Hamelia patens) as you see here, copper plants or other rusty-leafed annuals. Use it with pink or purple pentas. Just don’t try to mix it with other yellow flowers or foliage. It’s simply too intense.
