Stromanthe sanguinea will be a love affair at first sight. Who can resist those variegations in purple, chartreuse, and green that look like a Monet painting? If that weren't enough, as they fold their leaves at night, she shows off her maroon-colored slip on the underside of her leaf. That's an encore! Like having two plants in one! She stretches her long-legged stems up to 18-30" tall. Her long slender 6-12" leaves are where the emotional draw begins. She's ideal for a bathroom spa or a greenhouse!

About Stromanthe Sanguina

This dramatic multi-colored herbaceous perennial is part of the Marantaceae family ( Prayer plant) mimicking the nyctinasty or the diurnal response of raising and lowering their leaves due to light exposure. This one will give you something to talk about! Interestingly, one theory of botanists is it adapts in this movement to capture water on its leaves during the day and retain the moisture during the evening hours instead of evaporating.

Care Level: Plays Hard to Get

Though fussy because it needs lots of TLC (moisture and high humidity) it makes it all worth it with the colorful painted leaves it displays.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Fun Facts: This dramatic mul...

This dramatic multi-colored herbaceous perennial is part of the Marantaceae family ( Prayer plant), mimicking the nyctinasty or the diurnal response of raising and lowering their leaves due to light exposure. This one will give you something to talk about! Interestingly, one theory botanists believe is it adapts in this movement to capture water on its leaves during the day and retain the moisture during the evening hours instead of evaporating. Six to twelve-inch long leaves arise on leafstalks from the center of the plant. The Stromanthe sanguinea ''Tricolor' survives by adapting the leaf-blade facing or away from the sun. An upward folding of the leaves occurs at night, making the rosy pink bottom side more prominent. As the sun rises in the morning, the leaves will face the east to absorb the morning light. As more intense sunlight during the day develops, they shift to a more elevated position, so less of the leaf is displayed to protect itself.
