Still hoping...

Ordered this plant 6 or 7 months ago along with many others from VB. I am very happy with all plants, all doing well, but this one. I’m not sure what to do for it. It gets the same treatment as the violets, as suggested in the catalog notes. But this plant is barely hanging on. It arrived with 5 leaves, 3 of which slowly died from tip to stem, the other 2 getting larger, all while 2 new leaves started growing. And now the remaining 2 “older” leaves are starting to die at tips. I’m still holding on to hope...

Dale's Polar Lava

I just love the variegation of the leaves on Polar Lava. When it first arrived it wasn't in bloom but just looking at the leaves was pretty enough. I was reading from the reviews that people were looking forward to this one blooming so I wasn't sure if this was a more difficult bloomer since no one said their bloomed yet. I must say mine has been blooming for some time and I just love the contrast of the red blooms with the variegated leaves. What a display. Mine looks like the picture above only a bit smaller. It costs a bit more but it's worth it.

Lovely foliage plant

This plant is surprisingly compact with beautiful yellow variegated foliage. I haven't seen it bloom yet, but can't wait.

Amazing Variegation!

I received my plant earlier this summer and was absolutely delighted with the fine display o variegated foliage. It promises to be a splendid specimen and I can't wait to see it continuing to develop. Growth since arrival has been steady, I am expecting great things!
