Common Name: Black Cardinal
Availabilty: In Stock
The Black Cardinal is a gorgeous clumping, large leafed evergreen that is highly popular as a houseplant or shaded outdoor variety ideal for tropical settings. Gorgeous luscious deep green, almost black tropical leaves make this an understated star in your garden or home.
Accidental murderer of the plant variety? Well this little guy is low maintenance, tough and hardy compared to many indoor plant varieties. This is the plant that just keeps giving (he's a bit of a show off) as it also purifies the air in your home and is even quick to grow and establish. Growing up to a robust 1-1.5 metres tall and up to 1 metre wide, (we told you he's a bit of a show off!), add the wow factor to your environment.
Ideal for understory planting, tropical landscapes, shady areas, indoor gardening, contrast, mixed beds or container planting. The Black Cardinal dislikes direct sunlight. For indoor care, we recommend allowing to dry out between thorough waterings. Twice yearly fertilisation with a gentle, slow release fertiliser should be adequate. Bring the tropics to your home with the moody Black Cardinal!
Humidity loving, cold & frost sensitive, low maintenance. Most well drained soils. Full to part shade outdoors. Prefers bright indirect light indoors, but happily adapts to moderate light areas.
