This Shrimp Packs a Big Color Punch
One look at its rosy-pink flowers, and any doubt about how the Shrimp Plant got its name vanishes. A fast grower – reaching up to 6 ft. tall – the Shrimp blooms easily, and can be pruned into a bushy shape.
Native to Mexico, the Shrimp Plant is a frost-tender evergreen that prefers moist, well drained soil in partial shade. Its colorful flower bracts may actually bleach out in full sun. Hummingbirds and butterflies are drawn to the white flower inside its bracts. Container friendly, use the Shrimp indoors to brighten up a room.
