Calathea Makoyana Peacock
Calathea Makoyana, also known as Peacock Plant or Cathedral Windows, is a species of plant belonging to the genus Calathea in the family Marantaceae, native to eastern Brazil. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. Its pale green leaves are patterned with thin lines and larger ovals of dark green, making them look almost like feathers. For this reason, Calathea makoyana's nickname is "Peacock Plant." The undersides of the leaves are dark purple, and the mature plant grows to around 2' tall, occasionally putting out a show of tiny white flowers.
