This perennial evergreen shrub has colorful foliage great for tropical areas and houseplants. Foliage is large leathery and glossy in shades of red yellow purple and green and varies in shapes and sizes. Excellent choice for bright locations. Nice effect when planted in masses. As it ages, the plant’s color may darken to nearly black. This plant can be pruned if you wish to keep it to a certain size or encourage a bushier look. Otherwise, it will only need to be pruned to remove dead or unhealthy foliage. Brown leaves or stems should be cut all the way back to a node on the stem, and the same applies when trimming overgrown stems.
