Hello again Kitty,
    I have three plants I traded for last summer now in the garden. All are
variations on a theme... each one is larger than the other in size, general
appearance. Amount of arch to the leaf, rippling along the mid-rid or leaf
margin, coloring, etc. I am considering making a few more trades for some of
the more exotic cultivars ... read much more expensive plants.
    By themselves the plants are not all that jump up in your face
beautiful. Just different and one of those plants that fits a difficult
niche in the shade garden. Just so happens that it goes very well with
others. Great companion plant or not bad on its own. Can't ask much more
than that.
    I did order a couple of the more expensive cultivars, but they were sold
out when my turn came at shipping.
