Scientific Name: Peperomia Magnoliifolia
Native: Tropical and sub-tropical South America and Africa
Depite variations, most of this species has thick, stout stems and fleshy leaves. Its flowers are typically yellow to brown conical spikes. Compact, container-friendly, bonsai-suitable and ideal for small indoors spaces and tabletops, they grow to a maximum height of 12 inches. Some grow erect and some have threadlike, trailing stems. The fruit is a berry that eventually dries out and shows a pepper-like seed. Leaves vary according to the cultivar. This Magnoliifolia cultivar has beautiful, green and cream variegated leaves with a concavity, which has earned the name "Spoonleaf".
