Portularcaria afra - Elephant Bush (Portularcaria afra - Elephant Bush)

This is in my neighbor's yard. This shrub will grow 16 feet /4.5 meters tall and wide. It's very common here in California. It is commonly sold as a 'Baby Jade' plant in parts of the country and will stay small in a pot.

This shrub has little purple/lavender flowers at the tips in Winter or Spring.

At my other house I had many very large shrubs.
