Description for null

Native to New Guinea, caricature plant is a tropical evergreen shrub that will grow to 2-9 ft tall. Container plants typically grow as rounded 2-4 ft tall plants. Caricature plant is primarily grown for its variegated foliage. Oval to elliptic leaves (to 6 in long) are deep green varyingly blotched with cream along the mid-veins.

Terminal clusters of red to purple-red tubular flowers with protruding stamens bloom in summer. Flowers often do not appear on container plants, particularly if stems are regularly pinched to promote new foliage growth.

Planting and care

Caricature Plant has long been popular as a houseplant due to its superior tolerance to low light conditions while maintaining dense nicely variegated foliage. Not surprisingly, Caricature Plant turns out to be an excellent summer annual for a wide range of light conditions from full sun to dense shade.
