Variegated Aeschynanthus Lobbianus is a stunningly beautiful and unique plant. The leaves of the Aeschynanthus are thick and leathery, with unique cream variegation. The plant grows in a vine-like manner and at the end of each stem, a cluster of tubular, bright red flowers emerges, resembling a tube of lipstick. This native to tropical regions of Southeast Asia is also commonly referred to as a lipstick plant because of the shape of its flowers.
Aeschynanthus is a must-consider option if you are looking for your next trailing or hanging plant to brighten up your indoor space. These beautiful trailing epiphytes cascade out of their pots forming chainlink-like stems of bright glossy green foliage. If this plant only produced its foliage it would still be one of the best-looking houseplants around, but what sets this magical wonder apart from the rest is the incredible blooms of flowers, which is the reason it has been given the common name the lipstick plant. It produces clusters of vividly coloured red tuberous flowers that seemingly pop out of a deep maroon bud, giving it the appearance of a tube of lipstick.
This pet-friendly, air-purifying houseplant is a must-have if you like variegated plants.
