What an interesting plant, Colleen. I love the looks of this but cannot help wondering whether it "does" anything else? Love the greens punctuated by the stripes and bursts of yellow.

Thanks so much, Roxanne, Nikki and Eileen!

Nikki, it's basically a tree-like ornamental with a tropical look. Those little round "balls" begin as flowers that attract lots of tiny bee-like flies and end up as dark berries.
