I have a couple of these little beauties, but can't find out what the name of it is.
Thanks,
Jackie

Stormy19,
tiG is right and it loves sun, but be careful not to get water on the leaves while the sun is on it or they will spot badly. This plant EVEN grows in Iowa!! Can take cuttings too and they will do well.

Wow, and I keep seeing that name in Logee's and thinking I would love to have one but WILL IT GROW FOR ME, lol That is great. I should have plenty of it to share come spring time. Bonnie was great having you over and I have been meaning to write but you know how that goes, :). Maybe now that it's getting cooler and I can't be outside as much, I'll at least have a few minutes on the computer during the day.

Thank you everyone! I too have one of these plants, I bought it at a garage sale believe it or not. I have been wondering all summer if it has a name since everyone I asked had never even seen one.
Thanks (again) to you Shirley for the cutting info. Will they root in soil or in water? I will get on that before the poor thing dies, I thought it an annual so left it outside ready for the compost. Uh-oh!
There must be an empty pot around here somewhere . . .

Doreen,

I rooted mine in a regular potting soil. It took a while and then takes a while to see much growth, but they will still bloom, even if only a couple of inches tall. Should make nice plants by spring. Don't panic if they wilt down, just keep them out of the sun until they are well perked up and they will do very well.

Thanks for the quick reply Shirley. I'll steal a pot from a Brug, or share one for now. As for keeping them out of the sun, that shouldn't be too much of a problem what with all this wind and rain, came in from Iowa I think LOL.
