Again the name escapes me! Perhaps I'll make up all my own names and not tell anyone that I can't remember the real one. That might work. Anyway I love this plant for the colour of its leaves, for the gorgeous shape of its leaves and the red spikes of flowers. This is another plant which the birds adore. I have read that it can be weedy but here I have to pamper it to get it to grow well. White fly can be a problem but otherwise it's a lovely, lovely plant.
My original cutting came to me as a gift from the teapot man.
