Quick Overview:

Native to China and Japan, cast iron plant gets its common name from its ability to survive significant cultural abuse. It is an easily-maintained, stemless, evergreen foliage plant that typically grows to 3? tall. Arching, lanceolate, glossy dark green leaves (to 24? long and 4? wide) rise up directly from its fleshy rootstock on long stems.
