  Tapioca, a Texas Superstar with Lantana
Exposure: Full sun; partial sun
Size: Height 3-4 feet tall, up to 5 feet wide
Care: Variegated tapioca is a heat lover, and in fact does not grow vigorously until the night temperatures are consistently above about 60 F. This plant requires a well drained soil or container potting mix, but it tolerates a wide range of pH. Keep the growing medium moist, and mulch if planted in the soil. Supplemental fertilization is usually required since this plant displays best when it grows rapidly. Plants are most colorful when grown in full sun.
