In its native Africa this succulent plant grows to tree-like proportions, here it makes a more modest though still vigorous plant, and can be restrained by growing in a smallish pot. The upright stems bear oval leaves, in this cultivar they are streaked and mottled with red and green markings.

A word of warning, the sap is highly irritant, and protective clothing should be worn when handling or pruning. The sap is also toxic when ingested.
