Evergreen shrub species with attractive, white-veined, oval-shaped, foliage and showy yellow flowers. The leaves are thought to resemble the stripes of zebra, hence the common name zebra plant. Flowers are surrounded by bright yellow, modified leaves, called bracts. They are native to Brazil and are found in tropical climates. They make popular houseplants for their flowers and glossy, patterned foliage. Be careful as the common name zebra plant is shared with other, unrelated species and may lead to confusion!
