I have had this plant for about 15 years and never knew it's name. I was looking for Texas Star and ran across this and was thrilled, but believe it or not my last name is Turk how odd is that. Thank you for this web site and the info. you provide.

You are welcome Turk. In full bloom, this makes a lovely combination of green and red. This is not my plant though. I took this looking over the wall into my neighbour's garden.
