Clusia rosea Aureo Variegata - Variegated Autograph Tree
Clusias, with their beautiful "porcelain" flowers, are the easiest plants to grow. It will forgive you if you forget to water it... Takes both sun or shade. Very slow growing and can be used as a potted specimen. The plant forms interesting aerial roots. Small leathery, pear shaped leaves on compact, rounded shrub, with small light pink flowers. The leaves have a special effect: you may write with a sharp stick on the surface, and the writing will stay forever. Thus the common name of this plant!
