Lovely coloured leaves there HB. What coloured flowers does it have?

Thank you Linda and Klahanie. It has pale pink slightly scented flowers Linda. The leaves are its main attraction.

Sounds really lovely HB.

Its the back of the leaves which are maroon coloured. There is a white variety too, unfortunately the underside of the leaves are not similarly coloured.

I’ve not seen the white variety Sue. I will look out for one. I like the textured leaves.

Those are such attractive leaves, Sheila. The flowers will be a pretty addition too. Looks good in the blue pot!

Thank you Kate. I’ve been teasing plantlets from around the main plant and potting them up. I hope they survive.
