The species many people know as the "chocolate soldier" or "flame violet" plant, it is in the parentage of many episcia hybrids.  A lovely plant with quilted, chocolate leaves having broad silver veining in center and orange-red blooms.  An easy grower than can make a spectacular display.

I'm loving my episcia so easy to grow. Such beautiful leaves & blooms are a bonus.

Episcia cupreata

Well its been several years since I ordered plants and this one was a hit out of the park. I've see a lot of episcia in the past but no one growes and ships the most healty plants of all.still have several more to get when back in stock. Thanks Ron

1st but still a favorite

The first variety of episcia I owned and one of the few available that many years ago, but still remains one of my favorites.

A real eye catcher!

Episcia ‘Cupreata’ is absolutely beautiful! The stunning orange red flowers are a spectacular contrast with the bright foliage! A prolific bloomer. Beautiful plant in a terrarium. Easy to grow. Highly recommend. It’s been years since I’ve had one and I can hardly wait for my order!

Hearts Delight

Love the amazing variety of episcias found at Violet Barn. I ordered these for my daughter in Indiana because they are not easily found where she lives. They were packed with precision and care and arrived perfectly. The plants you offer are young and healthy and grow into beautiful flowering delights!
