Evergreen Shrub With Unique Shrimp-Like Blooms

This unique shrub is a tropical favorite that is almost guaranteed to stand out in your yard. What may appear as a flower is actually a bract. With small green leaves, the plant quickly becomes coated in creamy pink to salmon flowers that resemble shrimp!

The plant is also sometimes known as the Mexican Shrimp Plant, named after where it originates. It grows as a low-maintenance shrub that can get quite bushy and acts as an evergreen in warmer climates. It can even bloom year-round in favorable conditions.

The Shrimp Plant also does well when grown in a container and used to decorate a front porch or patio. In colder climates, the containers can be brought inside to overwinter, where you can enjoy their unique flowers indoors.

    Love it!

    It arrived in excellent condition and is doing well so far since I replanted it in a larger planter by my pool.

    Shrimp plant

    My plant came well wrapped and loaded with blooms. It is almost 5 ft tall. Absolutely gorgeous. I’m putting it in a large pot bc I’m not sure it will make it in my zone 8. I had one for years but it had to be brought in each winter and it came from Hilton Head SC
