Hemigraphis 'Blackberry Waffle'

This is a cute plant, sent to me by Hort Couture, but perhaps not very useful in North Georgia, as it is a tropical groundcover. Still, it may be useful as a houseplant. We'll f ind out . . .! I was sent three of them and this morning I noticed that one had little white buds in it. The foliage is the plant's most noticeable characteristic - attractive, rather glossy leaves.

The only place I have seen Hemigraphis growing in the flesh is in the Palm House in Kew. I like the leaves of Hemigraphis repanda better than this one.
