Related to the more well-known Joseph's Coat, this plant is well-branched with small, beautiful snow-white leaves at its top, and is well-suited to container gardens. They tend to start off a little small and floppy, but with time and sun will fill out, stand up, and develop their colors; if they are kept too shady, the tops will not turn as pure a white and the stems will remain limp.
