Common Name: Red Edge Peperomia, Baby Rubber Plant, Pepper Face
Availabilty: In Stock
The stunning Red Edge Peperomia is a truly gorgeous evergreen, boasting striking variegated foliage in deep greens in the hearts of the leaves slashed with a stark red border. This neat little grower is ideal for mixed beds, indoor planting or tropical gardening.
A favourite of interior designers, Red Edge offers incredible colour contrast indoors or out, and divinely low-care requirements. Peperomia varieties are famously low-maintenance, even thriving on a bit of neglect (or a lot, depending on your style). Growing approximately 300 mm tall & 300 mm wide, this little baby has a low but bushy growth habit and is hardy to boot. She is gorgeous potted up in containers, tropical landscaping, kept on patios, grown inside or in mixed beds.
Pinch tips to encourage or control growth, and her small root system means you never have to re-pot her. Keep in a bright environment to maintain vivid colouring, but she prefers part shade to bright, full shade outdoors. If growing indoors, she prefers bright, filtered sunlight and only occasional watering (when the soil is dried out - hey, we told she was low-care!).
Highly tolerant to humidity. Frost sensitive. Well drained soils. Part to full shade when outdoors, or bright filtered sunlight indoors.
