Columnea sanguinea 'Lia'

Description

Well-rooted plugs ready for 4" pots or grouped together in a 6-8" pot. Looks even better when planted in groups of 3 or 4. 

Sometimes referred to as the "Window Plant", this fast-growing gesneriad has amazing leaves. The tops of the leaves are solid green with 2-5 white splotches toward the tips. The underside of the leaf is solid purple. Not only that, but the white splotches reveal themselves to actually be translucent "windows" through which light glows as lit up red splotches on the very dark purple background. 1" long red, tubular flowers with a yellow margin are borne along the stem spring-fall.

Shipping note: 1 plug, or 3 plugs both ship at the "1 plant" rate.

This plant makes a great house plant as it does not need (or appreciate) intense sunlight. In mild climates, it can be grown outdoors as a small shrub. Also makes a great outdoor potted plant to be moved inside in the winter. Hummingbirds love this plant!

Care: Intermediate-Warm temps, Indirect light-dappled shade, regular watering and light feeding year round. It's best to pinch or prune this plant from time to time to keep it from getting leggy.
