I saw this plant and just had to buy it. The main attraction is the unique shimmering iridescent purple color, highly metallic and always a stunning contrast in any garden setting. It is shade loving and the colours depends on the temperature and light levels. It is mainly an indoor plant which is not frost tolerant, but I am using it here to introduce as much contrasts as possible.
