Most people think that you can’t have flowering plants in the shade. This plant will prove you wrong.
You will have tons of white flowers in a shady spot. It is a good bloomer. You will see flowers most of the year. The foliage is also very attractive. The dark green shiny foliage is a great contrast to the white flowers.
Keep the soil slightly moist (plants will wilt if too dry) and provide average fertilization. Even though they can produce flowers any time of the year, the best time to see flowers are from Nov-May. Pinch the plant occasionally to make fuller and avoid temperatures in the 30°s.
