Peperomia is one of the 2 large genera of the Piperaceae family, with more than 1000 recorded species. More than 1500 species have been recorded, occurring in all tropicaland subtropical regions of the world, though concentrated in Central America and northern South America. 

The lovely valleys and hills of the leaf form are wonderful to paint, and this cultivar is an astonishing colour.
