Please be aware Aramax are experiencing significant delays in freight in and around Auckland. We will not send any fragile plants in and around Auckland (unless you tell us too, at your own risk! ), until it is safe to do so. You can still order so you can garauntee plant supply, but please understand there are delays in getting plants to you safely. Freight out of Auckland, Waiheke Island and the South Island are still experiencing significant delays. We are working hard with a limited workforce under strict conditions which is also causing a delay in getting orders to you. We thank you for your patience and investing in upcycled and pre-loved plants, healthier for the environment and healthier for you! :-)
Originally from the rainforests of eastern Brazil. These plants have been in cultivation for such a long time that possibly the original species has got lost by the thousands of breed cultivars. Without exception, all the plants from this species provide a long lasting splash of vivid color for shady or partially shades spots. The attractive shiny green leaves develop color tinges in strong light, with the color relating to the final center color. Dependent to the variety, at flowering, the center turns brilliant red, cerise, pink or lavender. This type has thick stripes of white down the side of each leaf.
