I love foliage that's other than green because 90% out there is green! Burgundy, red, pink and variegated leaves are beautiful! And colorful foliage makes all the green around it look good too. Here's a plant with gorgeous purple leaves. It's Strobilanthes or Persian Shield. It likes partial shade and dislikes frost. That is why I'm on my 3rd or so plant. We don't get frost every year just every 4 or 5 years. Strobilanthes will grow about 2-3 feet tall. It takes to pinching nicely otherwise the branches get long and lay down. And a bushy plant shows more leaves. And who doesn't want to see more of these beauties?
