Autumn Color

I bought this plant last Spring for it's pretty variegated foliage. That white in the leaves really pops in the garden. It's called Hemizygia. Say HEM-e-ZEE-gee-uh. I planted it under our big Cedar tree as it likes part shade. I had seen it's lovely pink blooms at a friends house afterwards. Native to Australia(all the good plants are!) it blooms late Autumn through Spring. As I was watering this afternoon I saw it beginning to bloom. It's about time! Yay! Grows to about 3' tall. Prune after bloom.
