The Zebra plant is a fairly popular plant which is grown for its flower bracts and dark green leaves with prominent white colored veins. So if your looking for a flowering or a foliage plant then this is a plant for either or both.Flowers: The flowers look similar to other bract type flower heads and grow cone shaped at the tips of a stem with small flowers that grow out of the bract. The amount of flower heads produced depends on the amount of stems, which is more often than not, two - four. The flower bract will last for up to about 6 weeks and the small yellow flowers that grow from the bract last for about a week. The bract is the real attraction rather than the small flowers. A grower can expect flowers after summer.Foliage: As mentioned above the aphelandra squarrosa displays lovely dark glossy green leaves with prominent whitish colored veins. These leaves grow to about 9 inches long and a few inches wide within the center of the leaf, and they have pointed tips.
