Strobilanthes Dyerianus - Persian Shield
Strobilanthes Dyerianus "Persian Shield" thrives in shade or semi-shade and is one of the most vibrantly purple plants you’ll ever find. Originally from Burma, this plant grows well in the tropics or subtropics in moist, semi-shaded areas.
In more tropical climates where humidity is constant, this plant can handle almost full sun. Around Brisbane we recommend part sun, ideally morning sun with protection during the hottest part of the day. Although often labelled as an indoor plant, Persian Shield is a poor choice in all but the brightest indoor spaces. Best enjoyed on a patio or in the garden.
