Color Surprise: Tri-color Leaves with Pastel Pink
Tradescantias (also called inch plants) offer almond-shape tri-color leaves. While many varieties sport stripes, subtle coloration, and iridescence, Nanouk has something special: a new color combination! This plant’s extra large leaves are painted with broad stripes of light pink, green, and magenta. Set on a side table to show off its large colorful leaves, using decorative accents to draw attention to the unusual color combo. (Oh, that pink!) Nanouk has a trailing growth habit and it looks amazing tumbling over the edge of a tall pot, urn, or hanging basket.
Color Surprise: Dark Chocolate Brown
Plant collectors have been abuzz about this plant for years, and now Raven is available to everyone. What’s all the fuss about? The color: Raven has glossy, chocolate-brown foliage. Decorators love it because it mixes well with other plants.. ZZ plants are one of the easiest plants to grow because they are so adaptable; they thrive in most kinds of light -- from low to medium light. This plant's arching branches and rich dark foliage make it a must-have houseplant for your office, bedroom or bath.
Color Surprise: Reds, Pinks, Greens, Creams
Aglaonmea (Ag-la-o-ne-ma) may look like a mouthful to pronounce (we call it Colorful Ag for short), but it couldn’t be easier to grow. This boldly colored Chinese evergreen features splashy variegated and bi-colored foliage in reds, pinks, chartreuse, and white hues. Colorful Ags are ideal solutions for home decorators who want plants that push the color-palettes envelope. You can use these plants in place of cut flower arrangements on sofa tables, dining room tables, or kitchen countertops.
