You can always count on Trader Joe’s to make a grocery run a little more fun with its selection of plants and flowers. And one of the chain’s latest offerings is the prettiest pink plant you ever did see. Well, technically it’s green and pink — and the combination of hues makes this philodendron a must-have.

The @trader.joes.plants Instagram account shared two photos on May 7 of the pink princess philodendron spotted for sale at the chain, calling them “so gorgeous” in the caption. If you’re unfamiliar, once you see the unique greenery, you’ll understand why shoppers are hoping to pick up one (or a few!) at their local TJ’s. This $10.99 plant has dark green leaves accented with differently-sized light pink specks and strips — and sometimes, it has entirely pink leaves! The colors come together so seamlessly and will make this philodendron a standout in your plant collection. 

Plus, snagging this distinct plant for under $11 is definitely a deal. And if you’re new to the pink princess philodendron — or philodendrons — in general, you’ll be happy to know that they’re generally low maintenance plants and great for beginners, as horticulture writer Molly Williams previously shared with Apartment Therapy.

If you can’t find these affordable cuties at your local Trader Joe’s, you’ve still got options. Lowe’s is selling a Costa Farms Trending Tropical Pink Princess Philodendron House Plant in a 6-inch pot for $28.19. It’s a bit more than the $10.99 at Trader Joe’s, but it’s actually a pretty good deal considering the regular price at Lowe’s is $46.98. You can also get this one delivered right to your door and it comes with a self-watering planter — if you really want to take most of the work out of caring for your pretty new philodendron.
