DESCRIPTION

Swallow Tail, Butterfly Plant is a wonderful and unique plant that is sure to grab attention. Christia gets its common name from its triangular-shaped foliage with green and burgundy striping similar to the veins of a bird’s feather, such as a “Swallowtail”. Also known as “Butterfly Plant” because the overall leaf shape resembles a butterfly’s wing.

It is native of the Asian tropics where it would grow in grasslands, waste grounds, and thickets. If you are familiar with other plants with butterfly-shaped leaves like the Red Butterfly Wing (Christia vespertilionis) or Purple Shamrock (Oxalis triangularis) you will be delighted with the fluttering patterned foliage C. obcordata, which have vivid greens, deep maroons, and even yellow.

Water this houseplant moderately when the top of the soil is fully dry. As it grows in drier areas, this plant will grow best a mineral substrate mix, such as cactus / succulent soil. 

Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
