The ribbon plant is a definite conversation piece for the garden. Also called the tapeworm plant, the stems are flat and not round. The stems continue to add new segments or joints to grow into an upright, somewhat arching plant two to three feet tall. Tiny leaves match the stems in color but don't compete for visual attention. Hardy to USDA Zone 10.
