Pisonia umbellifera 'Variegata' (Map Plant) - It resembles a compact variegated rubber tree. It grows as a small tree (up to 4 meters) and produces fresh green leaves with blotches of cream color. Blooms, which appear in early summer, are open clusters of green flowers tinged with pink. The sticky fruits that follow are responsible for another common name, Bird Catcher Tree, as insects and small birds can get stuck to these fruit.

Pisonia umbellifera 'Variegata' rarely exceeds a height of 3-4 feet when grown in a pot. Flowers are not produced on plants grown indoors.
