Plant Features
Persian Shield Strobilanthes is a gorgeous ornamental that produces pink and purple leaves that are accented with silvery iridescence and a dark purple underbelly. It’s a knockout in partially shaded locations! Colors will become less impressive with too much sun. It is heat and drought tolerant and also makes an impressive houseplant!

Comment: I had never seen Persian Shield plants before and I knew I had to have them. The leaf color is striking. I am putting them in pots so I can be sure they get the right amount of sun so the color stays vibrant.

Comment: Although they are becoming more popular, I found it difficult to find plants or seeds, and was unsuccessful in starting them from cuttings. I found them online at  GrowJoy. The plants arrived healthy and on time. I was very pleased with my purchase.
