Ctenanthe burle-marxii is a beautiful, low-growing foliage plant with pale-green, oval-shaped leaves and a lush, deep-green herringbone overlay. The underside of the foliage is a burgundy-purple colour, an attractive feature that can be seen when the leaves fold up ‘in prayer’ at night.

Ctenanthe burle-marxii is part of the prayer plant family (Marantaceae) but tends to require less maintenance than its relatives, calatheas and marantas. It thrives in shady outdoor areas in warm, frost-free climates, making it an ideal groundcover in tropical-style or low-maintenance gardens.

(You will receive a bare rooted plant, similar to the ones seen in the images. Each living plant is unique and may vary slightly in size, colour or shape.)
