plant with green leaves and white leaves

hereiselfJune 16, 2008

I acquired this plant from a small nursery several years ago. He told me it was Snow on the Mountain. However a search for Snow on the Mountain brings up an Euphorbia type plant and it doesn't resemble this one I have.

It will grow 2-3 feet in a pot, tolerates shade and sun. It is an open leggy type plant when grown in more shade. It's lower leaves are green with the top leaves predominantly white. The leaves are small, stems are green on the older portion and reddish on the upper parts where the leaves are more white.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

First picture is too small. Second link does not work. Is it a woody plant?

look for images of Breynia disticha 'Minima'. The normal one is larger with red tones but the smaller white one is sometimes called 'Snow on the mountain'.

Yes, one of the images at Dave's Garden of Breynia disticha minima looks very much like the plant I have.

I apologize for the mistyping of the URL. I left the 's' off of photos.
I have corrected it below.

Thanks so much.
