Hi Jackie,
looks like it might be a copper leaf shrub.

That would be my guess too.

There must be more than one type of copper leaf then...I have one but it looks like the pic you posted Dave...this one doesn't...I think that's what we'll call it though! ;-)

There are many types of copperleaf. It's great in South Florida and adds texture and color to the garden. Copperleaf is also kin to the plant with fluffy little worm like blooms.

This is an indoor mini palm I have had for years. Suddenly it has something wrong. If you know what it is, please tell me how to fix it.
thanks so much

Was it subjected to cold temperatures? I don't know a lot about palms, but the spots could be burn from cold or sometimes not enough water can cause it. Maybe it just wants to go outside to more humidity when it warms up, that would be my first thought.
