Murdannia loriformus 'Bright Star' 12cm Pot
Item number PC79D
Murdannia loriformus 'Bright Star' 12cm PotMurdannia isn't one of those attention-seeking divas that just scream at you to pay it attention. It's a rather more subtle plant with sophisticated, wavy edged leaves, highlighted with a margin of deeper green that makes it stand out for no other reason than it is extremely beautiful. The strap-shaped leaves slowly spiral out from its central base, creating a delightful, gently sprawling habit which soon fills pots with lush greenery. Occasionally, at the tips of these stems, airy sprays of creamy white star shaped flowers will appear. A native of China and tropical Asia, the plant was originally grown for medicinal use, where it was used as an anti-inflammatory and also reportedly as a cure for cancer. Nowadays, it's more recognised as a plant that can help to clean the air in your home. Very easy to grow and perfect for even the most novice of gardeners, Murdannia is best grown as a foliage plant, in a shady spot indoors. Supplied as an established plant in a 12cm pot, ready to go onto a table near you, ultimately reaching around H40cm x W40cm.
