Peperomia fraseri

Flowering Peperomia
Family: Piperaceae
Origin: Central America
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall plant 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterWhite, off-white flowersOrnamental foliage

Peperomia fraseri, more commonly known as the Flowering Peperomia, is a flowering plant native to Central America. It is a woody and evergreen shrub that can reach anywhere between two to five feet in height. The plant has ornamental foliage made up of shiny dark leaves with scalloped and ridged edges, and the flowers are small and off-white or white in color.

In warmer climates, Peperomia fraseri makes an excellent outdoors groundcover. It is able to tolerate light shade and requires regular but moderate amounts of water. The Flowering Peperomia is great for regions within the USDA Zones 9-11, but can also survive in colder climates if kept in a pot or container.

When growing this plant indoors in cold areas, it is important to provide plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. The Flowering Peperomia grows best in a pot filled with well-draining, soil-based container mix. Make sure to water regularly, but don't over-water as the plant can become susceptible to root rot. Allow the surface of soil to dry out between waterings. The pot should also have a few drainage holes at the bottom for adequate drainage.

In addition, adding a thin layer of mulch over the soil is beneficial as it helps in reducing moisture loss from the soil and also prevents weeds from sprouting up. During the cold months of winter, the plant may enter a period of dormancy and may not require as much water. As the temperature and sunlight increase, the plant will start to grow and become more active again.

Overall, the Flowering Peperomia is a great houseplant for those who live in cold regions and can make for a great addition to any garden. With the right conditions and regular care, one can enjoy the beauty of these plants all year round.

Peperomia griseoargentea

Radiator Plant, Platinum Pepper, Ivy-Leaf Peperomia
Family: Piperaceae
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall plant 2-5 ftSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterOrnamental foliage

This slow-growing perennial is native to Central America and grows as a groundcover or low-growing, 2-foot shrub, in USDA Zones 9-11. The small ornamental plant is slow-growing and needs semi-shade and regular water to thrive.

Peperomia griseoargentea, commonly known as Radiator Plant, is an unusual and attractive evergreen perennial commonly grown indoors. It has heart-shaped, silvery-gray foliage with copper veins. The fast-growing foliage grows in rosettes and sprouts a lush, two-foot-tall plant when well maintained.

The plant is hardy enough to be grown outdoors in Zones 9-11, but it should be kept in partial shade and moderately watered. The more light it gets, the greater the chances of it growing successfully. To properly care for the Radiator Plant outdoors, water regularly until the soil is moist but not waterlogged; it is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. A mulch cover is recommended during the winter months to protect it from the cold. It can also be grown in a pot in cold regions or during the winter months, but make sure not to overwater it.

Although Peperomia griseoargentea is a slow-growing perennial, it makes up for it with its ornamental foliage and bright, cheerful colors. The Radiator Plant looks best in hanging baskets or as a lovely houseplant where its leaves can cascade down.

Peperomia prostrata

Trailing Peperomia
Family: Piperaceae
USDA Plant Hardiness MapGroundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall plant 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Peperomia prostrata (Trailing Peperomia) is a popular ornamental foliage plant with a range of colors and shapes that make it an attractive addition to any home or garden. This Groundcover and low-growing plant is only 2ft at its tallest and grows best in USDA Zone 9-11.

Peperomia prostrata grows best in soil that is moist but well-drained, so situate it in an area with good air circulation. Place it in an area that gets either full sun or semi-shade and water it moderately, allowing the surface of the soil to dry out between waterings. Prune it occasionally to promote fuller growth and to keep it tidy.

For those living in cooler regions, Peperomia prostrata is an ideal choice for a potted plant. Place it in a pot with sufficient drainage and use an indoor potting soil mix or a soil-based compost. Make sure the plant is situated in an area where it is exposed to bright, indirect sunlight. Keep the soil moist but not wet and, if possible, mist the foliage with water.

Peperomia prostrata makes a perfect addition to any home or garden, bringing vibrant color and texture, and can be kept in a pot in cooler climates with proper care. With its easy maintenance and vibrant foliage, the Trailing Peperomia is sure to spruce up any space.
