Chinese Evergreen is aa perennial herb, commonly grown as a houseplant. This tropical shrub grows to 1.5 feet, is erect and bushy, and resembles Dumb Cane. The tendency to have only 5-8 main lateral veins distinguishes it from Dumb Cane. It has elliptic, dark green, leaves that reach 4-8 inches long and 2-3 inches wide. Attractive silver-gray blotches appear on upright stems. It blooms rarely as a houseplant in the late summer or early fall with a white spadix and greenish-white spathe. Red clusters of berries follow the blooms. Chinese Evergreen is native to the Philippines and Sulawesi.
