    • Wife loves these plants and so do I. She has successfully rooted these plants ( takes about a month to get good roots).

    • This plant is amazing! I combined it in an urn type planter with Cordyline (in the Tai plant family), along with red Mandavilla and the result is so striking. The Mezeoo literally formed a veil along the outside of the planter, it is just stunning and interestingly enough the hummingbirds seem to like it. I live in the panhandle area of Florida just to give folks an idea of my locale.

    • Outstanding landscape filler plant. It completely covered the ground and added sparkle between my young shrubbery and the walkway, it bloomed continuously, and the foliage was dense and lush all season until frost. It can be trimmed to keep it in check and achieve a sharp border.

    • Very forgiving and rewarding. This plant is thriving and flowering indoors in a sunroom that faces East, so only gets sun until noon. It has leaves similar to a sedum and like those, it seems to tolerate brief dry spells without leaf drop or puckering. I highly recommend this as a houseplant for warm locations with good windows and sun for at least half a day. Note 5hat in partial sun flowers are hot pink rather than burgundy red. Very attractive!

    • Love this plant! It has grown like crazy this summer. I am going to bring it in for the winter & see if I can keep it going for next spring & summer. I buy lots of plants & produce at David's Produce in Ellerbe & love Proven Winners plants! Folks at Davids are the best! So friendly & know their plants!!

    • I use this trailing variegated plant as a lush addition to my hanging pots that receive intense afternoon southwesterly exposure to the sun in the sagebrush country of Eastern Oregon. The foliage itself is beautiful, and then you are surprised by gorgeous little magenta flowers mid-summer. The plant is vigorous and, as a friend I gave it to as a gift said was a "must," it is not toxic to cats who chew on plants. The plant moves indoors for winter, and then moves back outside in mid-spring. It is a gorgeous houseplant, as well.
