I rescued this around 2 weeks ago.


It was in a horrendous state, all bare, dead or dying twiglets poking haphazardly in all directions. but I spied a handful of live, healthy, small leaves, AND THEY WERE PINK AND WHITE VARIEGATED.

I have been looking for a pink leaved anything since falling in love with the Acer Taylor at the local garden centre.

Anyway back to topic.

This is it now, can anyone ID Pleeeeease.

and in advance, thankyou muchly. x x

    As it's made lots of new growth at the base, I would cut the long bit off at the base, it will give the new growth a boost.

    You may need to bring it in over winter, especially in its first year.

    Thankyou .

    I have a Couple of cuttings with new sprouts if leaves. I have some rooting powder but is it necessary with this type of plant.

    im hoping to grow my mum and gran their own as they really like it. I wish money was no object. Lol
