Flamingo Flower, Flamingo Lily, Oilcloth Flower
|There are more than 600 species of these tropical natives, several of which are popular in warm, frost-free areas or as greenhouse plants or houseplants. Prized for their foliage, some also offer exotic, long-blooming, veined flowers. These moisture lovers need frequent watering and misting, warm humid conditions and bright to low light. Pot in soil with fibrous bark or Osumunda tuber. Divide rootstock for more plants or to replace old plants with more vigorous, younger ones.
