Plants with more eye-catching foliage take center stage this summer. The beauty of these plants is that they’re showstopping in their own way, but not so ostentatious that they overpower your living space. Summer’s best plants catch the eye and make a statement in an effortless way. These plants don’t have to try too hard — they’re simply stylish with barely any effort at all.
Look for decorative leaves that seem a little different from what you might see on your average plant. Funky spots on Rex begonias lend the plant a polka-dotted effect that’s downright cute. The rose-tinged leaves on aglaonemas are almost impossibly pretty and just perfect for anyone who wants to add something other than green to their environment. There’s even a waitlist for the mysterious Albo plant, which is championed in botanical circles for its incredibly unique leaves bearing a white marble finish.
No matter where in the home you choose to place your plants this summer, expect them to transform your life in unexpected ways. At a bare minimum, you’ll love the way they invite a touch of Mother Nature herself inside your living space. What better way to stay in touch with the great outdoors? They’ll also purify your indoor air, add personality to your surroundings, and potentially even reduce your stress levels. Those are reasons alone to make this summer’s biggest plant trends an integral part of your life.
