This is a popular tropical ornamental plant. It is a small, evergreen foliage tree or a large shrub. It reaches a height of four to seven meters. This plant easily recognized because of the broad leaves and pale yellowish green to white color. Planted in good sunlight, the leaves may acquire a light yellow or white color, which looks nice and unusual. This can be planted singly in large compounds to make it grow into trees or planted closely and trimmed regularly to make a pleasant looking hedge.
