Strobilanthes dyerianus: a fascinating plant with a metallic appearance

Strobilanthes dyerianus is a splendid ornamental plant that originates in the warm and humid nation of Myanmar, where it grows like an evergreen perennial. Its foliage shines with a violet-tinged green iridescence which gives it a metallic appearance. The rough, lanceolate and silvery leaves would seem to resemble small, shield-like shields, hence the name "Persian shield". Its particular and luminous appearance makes it a perfect plant to embellish and brighten up any corner of your home. The name of the genus comes from the Greek words "strobilos" which means cone and "anthos" which means flower, in fact the blue inflorescences take on a tubular shape and can be admired between autumn and winter. The specific epithet is due to the botanist Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer, at the time director of the Royal Botanic Gardens. Strobilanthes dyerianus is therefore a delightful tropical shrub, which thanks to its shiny foliage, allows to create original color contrasts with other types of plants.

Strobilanthes dyerianus :how to take care

Exposure and brightness: Strobilanthes dyerianus is a very adaptable plant, provided that it is supplied with the heat and humidity it needs. It grows well in the sun and in the shade. A sunny area but sheltered from direct sunlight would be preferable. During the coldest months it is good practice to place it in an area well sheltered from cold currents.

Irrigation: this plant needs a regular level of humidity throughout the year, but not huge amounts of water. Between one watering and the other it is important to let the soil dry well. Spread the water during the winter months. We recommend using distilled water.

Fertilization: Fertilization must be carried out during the vegetative period with a specific fertilizer for green plants.

N.B. The specifications described above may vary depending on the climate of the area where the plant is placed and the season
