Triostar Stromanthe

Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar'

This striking tropical plant never fails to catch the eye, with exotic variegated foliage of cream, green, and pink. Broad, shiny leaves are arranged in fans, with burgundy-pink undersides. A wonderful houseplant or accent in sheltered shade beds or patios. In cooler climates, grow as an annual, or move containers indoors before threat of frost.
