Bridal Veil


Okay, this isn’t just a foliage plant – but the tiny white flowers that cover it aren’t big impact blooms. They’re delicate and airy, much like a bride’s veil that lightly conceals her face. The neatest features are the leaves, which are olive green on top and purple underneath, creating a jewel tone effect as the fine-textured branches cascade over the basket. The plant thrives in indirect light (such as on a porch) through summer and can be pruned back and kept indoors through the winter. If you need to shape it up, don’t be afraid to cut back the long mass of branches. In fact, bridal veil roots easily in water or soil, so you can use those clippings to share this beauty with a friend.
