'Siam Aurora' Aglaonema
Aglaonema, sometimes referred to as Chinese evergreen, is a great houseplant for medium to low light areas. Most cultivars have various patterns of silvery white markings on green foliage. 'Siam Aurora' is a stunning exception bearing foliage that is green with yellow markings and unusual coral pink coloring on the petiole, central vein and leaf margin. It is attractive on its own or as a part of a combination planter.
