Chinese Evergreen Overview
The genus Aglaonema contains over 20 species of tropical and subtropical evergreen perennials from Asia and New Guinea, typically referred to as Chinese evergreens. They are widely cultivated as houseplants for their attractive, often variegated foliage in dramatic colours. They make good houseplants due to their ability to survive in low light conditions, but do not tolerate cold temperatures well. In Asia, they were thought to bring luck and are popular as ornamental specimens. Upon introduction to the Western world in 1885, they have been extensively cultivated, hybridised and selectively bred into a wide variety of cultivars.
