Name That Plant: Tapeworm Plant

The tapeworm plant, or ribbon bush (Homalocladium platycadum), is a shade-loving plant perfect in a pot or growing in the ground. Although it is somewhat drought tolerant, it thrives in high humidity. It is a hardy evergreen to about 25 degrees and typically will come back from the roots in the spring. You can find this plant at the March Mart Plant Sale Friday, March 15, and Saturday, March 16!
