Hi Henry,

I love this plant. The picture you've included is somewhat confusing to me.....Is this what the plant looks like in the winter? I picked one up at the Conservatory in early April when it was quite small.......It is now one beautiful showy jewel...........Please let me know what to expect when I bring it inside this Autumn.

Yes that's the Winter color if it's not getting enough sunlight.
It reverts to a green.
It is now back to perfect color after being moved back outside.
Unfortuneately it didn't set seed.
I've taken a dozen or so cuttings.
