Pilea are herbaceous perennials originally from Mexico and Brazil. Outside of zones 11 and 12 they can be grown as annual foliage, houseplants, or fairy gardens and terrariums. Their evergreen summer toughness makes them a good choice for garden centers to have on hand through the hot part of the year. Customers will enjoy them in small pots for desks or hanging baskets for porches after their flowering plants have succumbed to the heat.
