Stomanthe sanguinea  common name is Tricolor. It is native to Brazil. It is mainly rain-forest plant. It is a very attractive and wonderful plant, so people like to plant it in their house indoor or outdoor houseplant. It grows 2-3 ft (60-90 cm) in height. The dark green leaves are variegated in shades of pink, red, white, or green. Each leaf has a mechanism for orienting the blade toward or away from the sun. The leaves fold up at night, making the rosy pink undersides more noticeable. But in the morning they face to the east so they will catch more of the early morning sun, and in the midday, they move to a more upright position so less of the blade is exposed to the intense sun. It blooms pink flowers in spring.
