Strobilanthes (also called Persian Shield) is a tropical, evergreen sub-shrub that produces soft green and silvery-purple foliage on large leaves that can grow up to six inches long. These upright growers can be used in landscaping or indoors as a houseplant. In zones 9-10, Persian Shield will continue to look great all year long. In zone 9 (and occasionally in zone 8), it will die back but resprout in the spring if the roots are properly mulched. As a houseplant, Strobilanthes can survive for years under proper care. Homeowners will need to take special care to make sure the plant stays in a humid area with morning sun and mid-day to afternoon shade.House plants will need to be misted several times a week to maintain humidity and moisture levels.
