Episcia Cupreta, also known as Flame Violet is prized for its showy leaves that grow in a rosette and reach 2-3 in (5-8 cm) long.

  • They combine shades of green and coppery brown, often with light green or silver veins.
  • Leaves have a metallic-like sheen that make this plant irresistible.
  • You can expect bright flowers to appear in spring and continue through fall.
  • Dainty, tubular flowers rise above the foliage and are typically red, but may be available in orange, pink or yellow.
  • They flare out at the tips like trumpets and are sometimes fringed at the edges. Deep in the center of the trumpet is a yellow eye.
