Product Name: Rhoe (P22c)
Rhoeo is indeed a well-known plant genus within the family Commelinaceae. The most commonly cultivated species in this genus is Rhoeo discolor, which is also known by various common names such as Moses-in-the-cradle, Oyster plant, and Boat lily.
Rhoeo plants are primarily appreciated for their striking foliage. The leaves are sword-shaped and have a combination of colors, often featuring green, purple, and pink hues. The upper side of the leaf is usually green, while the underside can be purple or pink, creating an eye-catching contrast.
Rhoeo is a low-growing perennial plant that forms dense clumps. It has a compact and spreading growth habit, making it a popular choice for ground covers or as a container plant.
Rhoeo plants can be propagated through division or by planting the small plantlets that form around the base of mature plants. When repotting, these offsets can be carefully separated and planted to grow new plants.
Rhoeo plants are considered mildly toxic to pets and humans if ingested. It's best to keep them out of reach of curious pets and young children.
