Sanchezia

Sanchezia is a 6-8 ft (1.3-2.4 m) semiwoody evergreen shrub with smooth bright green or purple stems, large variegated leaves and colorful flowers. The leaves are up to a foot in length, opposite on the stems and marked with prominent, well defined yellow or ivory veins. The tubular flowers are yellow with red bracts, about 2 in (5 cm) long and borne in terminal spikes of 6-10. In tropical climates, sanchezia blooms throughout most of the year.

Light: Light, dappled shade. Sanchezia needs bright indirect light to develop its best variegated foliage.
Moisture: Sanchezia needs a lot of water. Keep the soil moderately moist. Reduce water in winter.
Hardiness: USDA Zones 9 - 11. This tropical does best when temperatures never fall below about 60°F (15.6°C), even in the nongrowing season.
