(Persian Shield) Strobilanthes ‘Persian Shield’ is a striking plant for containers and landscapes alike.  The thick deeply veined leaves are a rich plum color with near-black veining. The purple iridescent shimmer is beautiful as the sunlight hits it. Standing 18 inches up to 36 inches in the right location, ‘Persian Sheild’ makes an excellent thriller in containers. The most vibrant coloration comes when planted in full sun, but Persian Shield’ also does well in a part shade location. This easy-to-grow annual is sought after by home gardeners as well as upscale garden designers. Pair with your favorite Supertunias® for the sun or mix with Impatiens for a shadier location, either way, you will be glad you gave Strobilanthes ‘Persian Shield’ a try.

    Outshined Them All
    I bought my first Persian shield last summer and was struck by it every time I looked at it. Planted among coleus, it outshined them all.
