Subscribe to back in stock notification
A wonderful and unique plant that is sure to grab attention. Christia gets its common name from its triangular-shaped foliage with purple and burgundy striping similar to the veins of a bird’s feather, such as a “Swallowtail”. Also known as “Butterfly Plant” because the overall leaf shape resembles a butterfly’s wing.
Swallowtails generally like a fair amount of shade and should not be kept in direct sunlight. They ought to be watered two or three times per week when it is hot, and not at all during winter, which is when they become dormant. Swallowtails are not at all fussy about soil.
