Description for Excoecaria

Excoecaria bicolor is a very colourful plant. Rich subtle shades of greens, whites and reds. The combination is a symphony. A brilliant lacquered red beneath and the arching woody stems.
It is a bit brittle and sap can be irritating, especially to the eyes, so best handle carefully and not a plant to put close to a walkway but otherwise it is a very attractive and pest free plant.
