Chinese Evergreen 'Garnet Coltrane'
The Aglaonema 'Garnet Coltrane' is a highly coveted variety because of its extra flashy foliage. Due to the amount of colorful surface area on these leaves this variety grows more slowly than many others of this genus, making it slower to produce, and an extra special treat when you can find one! The center of each leaf has a jet stripe of hot pink coloring and marbling of yellows, greens, and pinks radiating outwards from the center. The edge of the leaves usually remain dark green making the brighter parts of the leaves really stand out! This plant grows in an upright growth pattern. Large leaves grow along a central stem, which with thicken into a fleshy trunk as the plant ages.
Aglaonema are among my personal favorite plants, particularly for beginners and lower light conditions! Not only are the members of this genus beautiful to look at, they are also low maintenance, forgiving of care errors, and grow well even in very low natural lighting conditions!
