USDA Prohibits Shipping Live Plants to: AZ, CA, AK, or HI. If you reside in one of the states listed, your order will be cancelled. Decorative container (shown in photo) is sold separately. Native to Central America the tropical variegated Oyster Plant will show off its beautiful green striated leaves with creamy and pink stripes and burgundy purple undersides all year long. These tender perennials clumps will spread showing off their thick, lance-shaped leaves as they grow outwards from their short basal steam. Depending on the growing conditions the Boatlily will produce small, white, three-pedaled flowers at the base of the leaves. Supporting the flowers are purple bracts and after blooming are followed by beige fruits that produce seeds. The Oyster Plant is a popular house and landscape plant that can be set in flower beds or hanging baskets. The Cradle Lily is tough and adaptable and does well in full sun or partial shade. It requires average watering, well-draining loam or sandy soil to be at its best. If affected by mild frost it will grow back in the spring. It spreads by the seeds it produces and by the stem bits when coming into contact with the soil. They are easily invasive but will struggle in extreme drought or over watering.
