This is a colorful and unusual houseplant. Queen’s Tears have long, fluted, silvery-white leaves that are heavily cross-banded and turn a dramatic purplish bronze. From these grow graceful, downward curving spikes holding a mass of gorgeous, long-lasting blue and white flowers. Most interesting! You can watch nature at work as "tear drops” of sweet nectar form on the stigma. Withstands dry indoor conditions. Queen’s Tears grow well in light or shade.
