Product Code: 55564
Remarkable slate green sharply lobed "Sweet Potato" leaves with bright pink margins setting to rosy cream.

"Chicken Gizzard Plant" Bright yellow-veined apple-green rounded leaves, with odd notched tips, accented by red-magenta petioles and stems--due to the delicacy of this foliage, not as vigorous as the other cultivars in bedding designs--for the same color qualities we recommend you use 'Formosa' instead. Old fashioned p...
