I bought this little plant (alive and well) last fall at a Southampton nursery. It was displayed among the colorful ornamental peppers and hothouse chrysanthemums. I thought it would make a nice indoor plant that could be transplanted outdoors when the flowers disappeared. Surprisingly, the flowers never did disappear. Its enduring beauty was also its downfall. Displaying no dehydration, I continually forgot to water it.
So for my friends who tell me that you don't have a green thumb, this is a perfect plant for you. If it dies, no one will know. It'll be our little secret.
