Gardening is a passion for me. So far I have cultivated container garden, now developing a garden around our house, mostly on weekends.

Hi friends, please id this plant. It is a shrub and occasionally produces scarlet small tubular flowers at the tip.
Hi Uma, that plant came up before for ID @karmey posted in mid summer aus. I dont think we ever found a name for it. Maybe check with her 🤔
Thanks Deborah. Not in her plant list though, I am afraid @deekay. Karen, any help @karmey?
Hi Uma it's a caricature shrub 😊 @drumadixit
👍👏👏@Karmey Graptophyllum pictum 😆 and very nice it is too Uma 😍 @drumadixit
Thanks Karen, it is the Caricature shrub, isn't it? @karmey
Yes that's it Uma #graptophyllumpictum there are a few different colours green/cream chocolate/cream tricolour and variants of those colours, is yours in a pot or in the ground? @drumadixit #caricatureshrub
In the ground Karen and in shade. It's growing tall, if I prune it, it should develop lateral branches right? My mom has the one that you have, very pretty! @karmey
Yes Uma grows very tall but easy to keep to the size you want. And gets lots of l-branches so you can make a nice little bush, it's so pretty and birds and bees love it 😊 @drumadixit
