Product Details
A smaller species with leaves to around 10 cms wide or so in good conditions. These are deeply textured and have a reddish underside at times through the summer months.
  Flowers are reddish coloured and tiny but produced in masses on short stems easily to 60 cms high. It's a very unusual looking plant even when just in leaf.
