pot color

This rarely offered tropical plant shows off fantastically variegated foliage. Each dark green leaf is irregularly edged in creamy white, making it a showstopper when paired with green plants like Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum), Monstera deliciosa, and Rubber Tree (Ficus elastica). When young, it’s an excellent tabletop plant, but with good care over time, you can grow it into a dramatic floor plant. It can even be trained like a small tree! It is grown and shipped fresh from our farm direct to your front door.

  • Adds life and beauty to your home.
  • Can grow more than 5 feet tall and wide over time.
  • Note: We recommend this plant for indoor use only.

Plant Bio

Ceodes umbellifera Variegata

Originally from areas of Southeast Asia, Map Plant is a tropical shrub or small tree in its native habitat where it can grow more than 20 feet tall. Indoors as a houseplant, it stays much smaller. It’s said to have been discovered by Western horticulturists in the late 1700s, and despite being grown in subtropical gardens for nearly 250 years, it’s only now just coming indoors. The plant rarely flowers indoors, and if it does, we recommend removing the flowers as they develop to keep the plant looking its best.

Note: You might also see the plant offered as Pisonia umbellifera Variegata. No matter what name it goes by, we grow this plant only for houseplant use.
