These beautiful plants are in full bloom in my garden now, in fact they are always the first plants to bloom and their acid green color is just spectacular. I have collected few varieties during the years because of their hardiness and beauty.
I have a variegated sample, some purple ones, miniature ones and some that are just giants.
After bloom the inflorescence lasts many months because what we perceive as petals are actually modified leaves and they live a long time. The actual flowers are indeed very tiny.
