Hypoestes aristata Ribbon BushHypoestes aristata Ribbon Bush

One of our most anticipated bloomers of the year!Exploding into riotous Fall flower– the entire shrub becomes smothered in erect, multi-tiered flower spikes with stunning, vivid lavender and white speckled blooms. Provides endless fodder for late-season bouquets. Extremely ornamental and easy to grow! Can grow quite large if left to its own devices (ours reached a mammoth 6’ high and over 8’ wide), but it really does look best when kept around 5’x5’. Evergreen!Average water is fine, and rich soil is preferred.
