Persian Shield (Strobilanthes dyerianus)

Gainesville, GA(Zone 7a)

I saw a picture of this plant online and knew I wanted to have it. I was shocked that Walmart got in a few this spring so I grabbed up 2 of them. It looks wonderful in my shade area with sweet potato vines around it.

Great pic Mary. Your Persian Shield looks terrific with the lime green Potatoe Vine. How did the Potatoe Vine do in the shade?? I just picked up 2 Persian Shield plants today & I think I'll try Potatoe Vine with it thanks to your pic! Happy gardening!! Sunshine Sue
