Persian shield (Strobilanthes dyerianus) is a stunning ornamental plant
that originates in the warm and humid nation of Myanmar, where it
grows as an evergreen perennial.
Grows 3-4’ tall in frost-free climates as bedding plants that are replaced
in the garden each spring or in pots/containers which are overwintered
indoors or as houseplants. Pinch stems as needed to avoid legginess and
stimulate bushiness. Best grown in organically rich, medium moisture,
well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Likes consistently moist soils.
Best foliage color in part shade. Full sun is probably best only in cool
summer climates. Consider taking cuttings from overwintered plants
for spring planting and/or taking cuttings in late summer for overwintering.
Features ovate-lanceolate dark green leaves (to 8” long) that are flushed
with silvery-purple iridescence above and dark purple beneath. Flowers
appear in short cone-shaped inflorescences, thus giving rise to the less
frequently used common name of Burmuda conehead.
