DESCRIPTION
Hypoestes is one of those plants that you kind of pass by without really thinking about but here we combined it with some other accent/component plants in our 14" Cocoliner Basket and hung it outside our office and it looks great. Typically grown as a colorful potted plant, in three shades: white, pink and red, it is ideal for shaded garden beds.
