Stands out with its rich, shiny, undulating foliage ranging in color from umber to deep sienna. Particular notice is paid by all to its hot pink undersides that make this plant shout, “Take me home!” Showy in all seasons, this vigorous plant has heavy substance standing up to inclement weather. A great landscape choice which performs well in both sun and shade. Won first place at the Royal Dutch Flower Bulb Association show in 2008.
