Manihot esculenta ‘Variegata’ – Variegated Tapioca (4″ pot) (coming this spring)

Ships in 4″ pot.

Out of stock


The boldy variegated foliage starts reddish – pink then as it matures they turn into exotic gold, cream & green variegated leaves with pink branches coming off the trunk. This plant’s creamy yellow markings do not fade. It looks good in containers or in garden beds, and you can use it in the foreground or as a focal point in distant plantings. Variegated tapioca attains a height and width of 3 to 4 feet. The tubers (roots) are also edible when cooked. Whether you call it cassava, tapioca, manioc or yuca, it’s the same great taste!
