Persian Sheild.


By Stan510

Persian Sheild. (Strobilanthes dyerianus (Persian shield))

Time of the season to move plants to get more sun. This plant is the opposite of everything I thought it was...not a shade plant,not short lived- this is 5 years already and still looks good. Its not a small plant.
I only got right it needs watering. Still,not so bad for a potted tropical.

Thank you Waddy- I just today put it into a larger pot. A square black plastic that makes for a better background for those iridescent purple leaves. I feel a its a good pot and plant match.
