Callisia gentlei var. ‘elegans’ is a South Mexican creeper with the very descriptive common name Striped Inch Plant. This exotic trailer has thick, rigid, lance-shaped leaves. The leaves are dark green and covered with silver stripes that run along its length and small, white, 3 petaled flowers appear occasionally as it grows. It makes a nice hanging basket or will trail along the soil surface. Callisia elegans will also add elegant contrast in a terrarium.
