Purple Heart, also known as Purple Queen, is one of the most effective air purifying indoor plants around. Its fuzzy purple leaves can reach lengths of 7" long. In the summer and autumn, bright purple flowers bloom on the end of their long stems. To keep your plant looking healthy and full, it is a good idea to prune back stems after the plant has flowered. They require well drained soil to prevent root rot. Lightweight commercial potting soil with perlite or compost works well.
Purple Hearts look great as a ground cover, in hanging baskets or cascading over the sides of containers.
