Variegated devil's backbone has green and white leaves and reddish flowers in summer time. This evergreen shrub has medium-green, slightly glossy leaves that are perfect ovals edged in white. They flank the zigzag stems to resemble a crooked backbone with ribs.
Grow Pedilanthus in full sun to partial shade in a very well-drained, sand-based soil. In hot summers, shade is recommended for afternoons and so is moisture. Keep the soil drier in winter.
Take care not to over-water, which can cause rotting. Water sparingly, just enough to make the potting mixture moist.
Liquid fertilizer should be used once a month. Plant in well drained sandy mixture.
Suitable for Container . Ideal for windowsills
