Growers unveil many brand-new plants at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This year Costa Farms' Dracaena ‘White Aspen’ won the award for Best New Foliage Plant.
A new variety of corn plant (Dracaena), White Aspen shows off rich green leaves strikingly edged in creamy white. “Its eye-catching leaves are ideal for brightening boring corners in the home or office,” says Mike Rimland, Plant Hunter at Costa Farms. “‘White Aspen’ is a really cool makeover of a tried-and-true favorite houseplant.”
With low care needs and a long lifespan, ‘White Aspen’ grows best in medium to bright, indirect light.
White Aspen is relatively slow growing. Over time, it may top 5 feet (1.5 meters) tall. It thrives in natural and artificial light. “The striking white variegation stands out in a room, especially when paired with other plants. It’s white variegation especially trendy on social media,” says Rimland.
Dracaena ‘White Aspen’ is expected to start to ship to retailers across North America starting in fall 2020.
