Additional Information About Cast Iron Plant

Cast Iron Plant is a moderate growing perennial plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 8A through 11. It prefers growing in a location that provides shade, morning sun with afternoon shade or filtered sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, diseases and heat.

Cast Iron Plant can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in foundation plantings, in containers or planters, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as an accent, under a shade tree, in landscape beds or islands, to accentuate entryways or in small groupings and also in theme gardens, cottage gardens, perennial gardens or shade gardens.

Noteworthy Characteristics

As the various common names suggest, the cast-iron plant is one tough species. It will practically grow in the dark. Excellent for those difficult to fill areas in deep shade. Upright, bold, dark green leaves form attractive clumps in the garden and contrast wonderfully with surrounding, light-colored plants. It can be grown as an evergreen perennial outdoors in zones 8-11 and ranks right up there with snake plants and philodendrons as being an almost indestructible houseplant. 


Cast Iron Plant is great for use in shady gardens and container plantings to provide bold texture and a vertical accent. Plant as a specimen in large containers or in small to large groupings in landscape beds. Perfect under large shade trees, decks, covered porches and any other very shady location. Combines nicely with fine-textured perennial ferns, Caladiums, Lamium, Variegated Vinca Major and other shade-loving plants.


Capable of surviving under very low light conditions coupled with extremes of temperatures and irregular watering. Prefers a well-drained, moist soil of average fertility. Hardey in USDA Zones 8-11
