Chinese Evergreen ‘Silver Queen’

Genus name comes from the Greek words aglaos meaning bright or clear and nema meaning a thread in reference to the stamens.
Aglaonema ‘Silver Queen’ sometimes called painted drop tongue, is an evergreen perennial with a free-branching habit that typically grows to 24” tall. It is a very popular houseplant that survives well in low light. It is primarily grown for its attractive variegated foliage and not for its insignificant flowers. Thick, elliptic to lance-shaped, dark green leaves (to 4-6” long and 2-3” wide) with attractive silver-gray variegation appear on short stems rising from the soil. Leaves are silvery-white with green margins and veins. As the plant ages, it begins to develop a trunk-like stem as the lower leaves fall off. Flowers (typical arum family) appear on a small creamy white spadix surrounded by a greenish-yellow spathe. Flowers usually bloom in summer to early fall. Clusters of orange berries follow the flowers. Flowers and fruit are infrequently produced indoors.
