Portulacaria afra 'Golden Jade' + Cement Planter 12cm

BOTANICAL NAME_ Portulacaria afra

AKA_ Golden Jade Plant, Jade Plant Golden

FEATURES_ Jade plants are hugely popular as garden plants, in pots and also as Bonsai. This is the golden form of Portulacaria afra, it is slower growing than the usual green form and tends to be more compact in habit. In winter the golden colour intensifies to bright yellow against purple-red stems and is very attractive. It is a great one for shaping as a bonsai by peeling back the leaves at the stem to shape.

PLANT SYMBOLISM_  Jade Plants are considered a good luck charm in China. Traditionally placed at the entrance of a home or business to encourage growth and renewal and future prosperity for the owners. In Feng Shui, place this plant east for health, harmony and scholarly pursuits, south east for wealth and luck, and west for creativity.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ The perfect gift for new ventures, as a wedding gift, new beginnings, starting out and for long lived relationships and friendships. The adage goes, ‘A jade at the door, poor no more.’
