As tough and hardy as its name implies, the old fashioned Cast Iron Plant thrives on neglect. An easy care house plant for low light areas, this extremely hardy evergreen is renowned for surviving even the most extreme conditions where other plants may shrive and die. With a smaller size of just 3 ft. tall and wide, this slow-growing plant has a clumping habit of seemingly no stems, just lots of lance shaped, deep green, glossy leaves. Perfect for homes, offices and often used outdoors as a deep shade ground cover, commonly found under large oaks and other shade trees. The long pointed leaves are often used as the structural accent in cut flower arrangements.
