Product Description

Handsome, shiny, dark green, heart-shaped leaves make ‘Emerald Gem’ a popular interior plant and groundcover for shady, tropical gardens. This lush, evergreen foliage plant thrives in warmth and humidity and is easy to grow if given the right environmental conditions. Queen-of-hearts is a clump-forming plant with stiff, waxy leaves that are deep green and glossy. They are upright and held on long, flexible stems that arise from a grounded plant base. The leaf blades are heart or wedge-shaped and have prominent leaf veins. Occasionally, in the warm months, the plants produce light greenish flowers. These have a curved, hooded bract (spathe) that surrounds a small, green floral column (spadex). Grow queen-of-hearts in bright diffused light or deep shade. It requires warm, moist soils that are rich in organic matter and drain well. Avoid dry, windy sites for best performance. In indoor settings, make sure it receives adequate light and is not subjected to drying heat or wind from heaters or fans. In the landscape, this tropical looks best massed as a groundcover under the shade of trees, especially if paired with bold ferns and begonias.
