Persian Shield Plant

A Persian Shield plant, sometimes called a Royal Purple plant, is a tropical, fast growing plant that loves high humidity and warm temperatures. It has dark green, iridescent leaves with metallic, light purple stripes. Originally from Myanmar (Burma) not Persia, it gets the name Persian Shield because the leaves resemble little, feudal battle shields. The pale purple flowers of a Persian Shield plant can’t compare to the beautiful leaves. This plant can be planted outdoors, but does even better as a potted, indoor plant.
