    Costa Farms’ Dracaena ‘White Aspen’ Chosen Best New Plant at TPIE 2019

    Miami, Fl – February 4, 2019 — A multitude of new plants are presented every year at the Tropical Plant Industry Exhibition (TPIE) in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This year Dracaena ‘White Aspen’ from Costa Farms was crowned best new plant.

    White Aspen is a fresh new variety of corn plant (Dracaena) that sports green leaves boldly edged in creamy white. “Its eye-catching leaves are ideal for brightening boring corners in the home or office,” says Mike Rimland, Plant Hunter at Costa Farms. “‘White Aspen’ is a really cool makeover of a tried-and-true favorite houseplant.”

    An easy-care, long-lived indoor plant, ‘White Aspen’ thrives in medium to bright, indirect light. This makes it ideal for adding texture and a touch of life to a wide variety of indoor settings.

    Slow-growing, it can eventually reach 5 feet (1.5 meters) tall or more. It grows well in both natural and artificial light. “The striking white variegation stands out in a room, especially when paired with other plants. It’s white variegation especially trendy on social media,” says Rimland.

    Dracaena ‘White Aspen’ is expected to begin shipping to retailers across the US and Canada starting in fall 2020.
