I have always admired this plant, but it's so expensive in plant nurseries. Also, it is considered a "tender perennial" which means it may die in cold winters. It does get cold here, so I did not want to buy an expensive plant for only one year. Today, I saw this one at Grocery Outlet for only $11.99. I could not resist bringing it home.

It will, but it's so big I'm not sure where I would put it.

I think it is hardy enough to survive an average winter, just not an extremely cold one. We get that every once in a while.

At first, I thought it was just green. When I looked closer, I saw some purple ones.

I think if you think it's cheap , then it wouldn't hurt your pocket that you can only have it before winter . It's beautiful indeed.
