Panda Plant Overview

K. tomentosa is an interesting houseplant with small, fuzzy leaves that have brownish-red markings around its edges. It has an erect, bushy habit. In cultivation, it rarely flowers – if it does, yellow, fragrant tubular flowers are produced on panicles in early spring. As such, this species is primarily grown for its foliage within homes or offices.
