Additional Information

History and introduction of Red Siam Chinese Evergreen:

Chinese Evergreens originated in southeast Asia, and have been widely cultivated and hybridized. For centuries, they've been given as good luck gifts to new homeowners. Kew Gardens in the United Kingdom was the first place they were introduced to in the west in 1885. The Red Siam Chinese Evergreen is just one example of a hybrid in a family of plants with foliage that is red, pink, white, silver, and green. The foliage varies by pattern as well; some have spots, stripes or swaths of color. One of the other beautiful features of tropical plants is that they can adorn a porch or shady spot outdoors in the summer, but provide color and personality indoors during the winter. Chinese Evergreens, including Red Siam, do not tolerate drafts or cool temperatures (below 60 degrees F). They are known worldwide as an excellent low maintenance, low light houseplant. The scientific name, Aglaonema comes from the Greek words ‘aglos’ and ‘nema’ meaning bright and thread respectively. The common name, Chinese Evergreen, comes from the fact that the Chinese were the first to propagate this sturdy, evergreen shrub before it became worldly popular.
