Ctenanthe Amargris

Common Name: Never Never Plant

Availabilty: In Stock

The graceful Ctenanthe Amargris is a striking evergreen perennial cultivar with truly stunning foliage in shades of purple, green and silver. The silvery-green faces of the foliage bear a dainty and eye catching herringbone pattern, while the undersides are a stunning deep purple tone. Pretty leaves respond to the time of day, the deep purple undersides on display at dusk and in the evening, while the pretty patterned faces reveal themselves during the day.

Prized for indoor gardening, this statement houseplant purifies air indoors, and even prefers lower light areas while inside (Just take our money already)! Growing up to 300mm tall and 400 mm wide depending on environment, this Ctenanthe variety has more rounded foliage and is a far more moderately sized low grower, while the dense, clumping growth habit renders it even more ideal for ground covers when planted en-masse.

Hardy, easy to grow and low maintenance the 'Never Never Plant' is perfect for container planting, shaded areas of the garden, under planting taller shrubs as a ground-cover, patio gardening, or as a striking indoor specimen. This tropical girl loves humidity and regular watering.

Hardy to humidity; frost, wind and drought sensitive. Moist, well drained soils. Dappled to full shade, prefers sheltered location.

Slightly poisonous, keep out of reach of children.
