Product Description

Low-Maintenance and Reliable

Shade tolerant and totally adaptable: The Cast Iron Plant offers abundant groundcover and grows well when planted under trees that cast shade. Basically, this plant is your solution to adding color back to your shaded areas. And its thick, deep green foliage provides depth when added to flower gardens, too. 

While it’s a relatively slow grower, it will be a colorful addition to your landscape from the start. Consider planting it in a shady corner in your yard, where you need a little something to brighten up the space.

Even better? It's the perfect house plant. This is the ideal indoor plant for those who travel, or simply don’t have a green thumb. It doesn’t require a lot of attention, and unlike most plants, doesn’t need much light. Closely related to the lily, it’s equally as tough and attractive - 12 to 24-inch leaves grow in an upright fashion, adding a trendy touch to your interior.

Plus, because it's an evergreen variety, it will be with you for years and years. If planted in the ground, its dark green leaves belie a pretty feature: right above the soil’s surface, you’ll find small purple flowers that spread underneath the thick, glossy foliage. Due to its robust nature, growers have reported their plants surviving freezing temperatures with no damage. 

Nicknamed the “Ballroom Plant” because hotels, malls and airports adorn their interior spaces and landscapes with it, the Cast Iron Plant is low-maintenance and strong, making its name particularly apt. It's not finicky and can grow year-round. You can practically plant it and forget it! It’s insect and disease resistant, so as an added benefit, no chemicals are needed to keep this plant in great condition.

Easy to own. Long-lived. Well-suited to any area. Order now!

The plant was extremely well packed. I first wondered if there was an actual plant in there. Once I found it, WOW. Nice big levels, several new shoots coming in already and growing beautiful. I changed the pot after a week or so out of original pot. It is doing so well. I couldn't be happier.

Cast Iron Plant

The Cast Iron Plant was a bit of as disappointment. there were only 5 leaves, otherwise the plant itself was in excellent condition.


Disappointed a bit

Well I was all excited to open the box my Lily plants are in only to find them full of sand lopsided I had to in a sense replant them myself they are not tall at all but do have a nice amount of stems.


We're so sorry that your plants didn't travel very well! It looks like we have taken care of this issue so hopefully we were able to turn this experience around!
