Geogenanthus poeppigii, Geogenanthus undatus

Seersucker Plant
Family: Commelinaceae
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliage

The bottom of the leaf is purple and the top of its leaves are green with darker green stripes. The surface as a whole has a "puckered" appearance; hence the common name seersucker plant. This plant is particularly unique because its cymes rise from the lower nodes, which often looks like their growing out of the ground.
