STROBILANTHES – Persian Shield

(stroe bih LAN theez)

Tried & True Strobilanthes

Tried & True Strobilanthes

Strobilanthes is a beloved house plant that has found its way to the garden. The foliage is breathtaking with its multitude of colours – variegated dark green, purplish-pink on top and all purple underneath. The silvery-metallic foliage shimmers with iridescence. It is a challenge to find a colour that Strobilanthes does not flatter, but it looks best with pinks, blues, and purples. The delicate flowers are funnel-shaped, pale violet, and arranged on short spikes. Strobilanthes has a tendency to look washed out if grown in a shady location; full sun yields the most vivid colours.
