Striking green foliage. Dark, glossy leaves that grow 12-24 inches add easy color to backyards, patios, home offices and more. Plus, when Cast Iron Plants are planted in the ground, you'll get an added pop of color with small purple flowers underneath the foliage.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Cast Iron Plants prefer sun to partial shade. When planting outdoors, select a shaded area. Indoors, look for an East-facing window free from drafts. For potted Cast Iron Plants, choose a well-draining pot 12 to 14 inches in diameter.

2. Watering: Allow the top layer of soil to dry out completely between waterings, and water deeply until water drains from your pot.

3. Fertilization: Cast Iron Plants are naturally slow-growing and don't require much additional fertilizer. Use a water-soluble fertilizer once a year, in the spring.
