  • I had this plant several years ago & was very pleased with it. The foliage is beautiful & the tiny flowers keep coming - it's true you don't need to deadhead - just brush the leaf branches & the tiny dried flowers (which you hardly notice) fall off.

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