  • This plant is my absolute favorite! I bought this plant as a small, sickly looking thing from a local supermarket on Mothers Day 2015-and he's still alive and beautiful! I bring him into my office every winter (we live in Indiana, where it gets too cold!) I will say that the florescent lighting in my office has changed him some-his leaves now have a gorgeous red undertone and he stands out of his planter approximately 3 foot tall! (This plant is supposed to be an annual, but he is thriving 3 years later!) I highly recommend Proven Winners to all of my friends and family, and every year I buy this brand!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • This is a show stopping thriller in the shade garden or planter. I have deep shade on my front porch and it is fantastic every year! The leaves are so large and stunning in my large pots, they look terrific with bright lime sweet potato vine, caladium, miniature ferns, and new guinea impatiens. I will definitely buy more this year! Get one and enjoy!!
