Ruellia amoena [graecizans]
Stock Number: 50059
"Red Christmas Pride" Erect somewhat woody stems support attractive foliage with purple blushed underleaf; scarlet pouch flowers reach their blooming peak midwinter. Extremely vigorous and as popular now as in Victorian times when it filled that pre-poinsettia era with red blossoms at Christmas.

Saxifraga cuscutaeformis Maroon Beauty
Stock Number: 58310
Wide low rosettes of gray green thick leaves with silvery veins and rosy ruby blush beneath. Lovely carpeting subject (even surviving outdoors in some of our milder winters).
Selaginella umbrosa
Stock Number: 11478
"Red Clubmoss" Dark reddish stems give bronze mahagony tone to the abbreviated deep green leaves; tossled waves of short foliage make this Mexican a collector's choice. Small statured plants somewhat slow to establish compared to some species. Avoid extreme heat and deep shade.
Setcreasea [Tradescantia] pallida Biltmore Bimbo
Stock Number: 49431

Setcreasea [Tradescantia] pallida purpurea
Stock Number: 50527
"Purple Heart" Trailing succulent stems clasped by dark purple strap leaves with cobwebby hairs; violet spiderwort flowers. This is the basic. Dead common, yet great eyecandy.
Setcreasea [Tradescantia] pallida Tampicana
Stock Number: 50528
Heavy curved (nearly keeled) laquered leaves of rich bronzy blushed purple on short stoloniferous stems; pale violet flowers in toppling clusters. Most unusual succulent vine of unclear nomenclature, considered a native of Ecuador. Must have high light to get the best color and most compact habit--best in full sun.

Zebrina pendula purpusii
Stock Number: 50556
Deep pruple foliage--the darkest we have seen--with slight silvery chevrons giving depth to the darkness. Rather smaller foliage than most cultivars.
Zingiber Midnight
