The stunning Maranta leuconeura is a flowering evergreen, native to Central and South America (primarily Brazil) and are commonly called the Prayer Plant. They are grown for their attractive foliage. The Prayer Plant have oval shaped, strikingly-marked leaves with a distinctive pattern on the top side of the leaf.

The leaves have a habit of lying flat during the day, and folding in an erect position at night as if in prayer hence the common name 'prayer plant'. They make fantastic underbedding plants because of their low growing habit.
