This variety of the Hemigraphis has a red turn, allowing for its low-lying plant to be conspicuous by its foliage colour and thickness. What adds to the drama is a generous blossom of white or pink that stand contrasting over this ground covering plant. Take this plant home for a great border or perfectly lovely hanging basket decoration.
