Description

A native to South America the Peperomia argyreia is a small plant grown for its attractive leaves. They grow up to 12 inches tall. Because of their small bushy rosette appearance they’re best suited when grown outdoors as a ground cover or grouped together with other plants indoors. These peltate leaves (stem attached centrally) are kind of oval in shape and display an outstanding mixture of green and silver stripes. The leaves have a fleshy feel to them that are attached to thin non-woody red stems.
