A few months ago I was at my fathers house and notice a plant that was amazing. I had to have it. This plant was the Variegated Tapioca ( Manihot esculenta 'Variegata' ). This plant looks amazing with it's red stems and unique variegation. I am not sure if this is edible or not so if you have any input I would greatly appreciate it. The Variegated Tapioca plant grows to about 6 feet tall and does well in full sun to partial shade. The Manihot esculenta 'Variegata' is easily propagated from stem cuttings. This is the process that I used to get mine. It looked a little rough for a while but looks very good now. Here are a few pictures of my Variegated Tapioca ( Manihot esculenta 'Variegata' ).
Thank you for stopping in. I hope you enjoyed the post!
