I don`t have a picture, but I can vividly describe it.
I saw the plant in Palm Springs International Airport, in the departures area but I was rushing and had no time to take a picture.
The plant was beautiful and I`d love to try and grow it.t
The plant looked like it had layers of orange, the leaves were green but looked like they had orange leaflets or petals attached to the leaves.
It was mostly green with patches of orange.
The seeds were in pods.

If this sounds like a plant you know I`ll look up anything. I`ve spent hours looking for it. Please help.

Call the airport - talk with customer service for the airport - not a specific airline. They should be able to tell you.

I can suggest several types to look at? Heuchera villosa 'Caramel'
Dryopteris erythrosora, and a S African tree GreenOrange -Chlorophytum crop Chlorophytum
These are just wild guesses- my first reaction was poinsetta

Tree? Shrub? Perennial?
How tall? Was it being trimmed as a hedge or any other way?
Flowers?

Nandina has multicolored leaves, but the fruit is red berries.

Madlee, if all else fails, you could e-mail Michael Buccino Associates...he is the landscaper that did the work at Palm Springs International Airport.

I would just comment that none of the suggested plants would survive in Palm springs, except perhaps the African tree. BTW, Dryopteris is a genus of ferns.

Check out Codiaeum variegatum.

If I'm reading the query right, the plant is indoors, so climate wouldn't be a factor.

I wonder if it could be a Justicia species...indoors or out they tolerate heat quite well.

good thought MoonHowl. There are some desert sp. of Justicia - some are even orange. Our native is Justicia californica.

It will not have to be a native or xeriscape plant necessarily...The landscaper was adamant that the PSIA needed greenery and blooms to welcome travelers...there was a whole magilla about it with the Airport planning Commission.
