I notice there are different types sold in the stores. I was given a dead one years ago, and have managed to bring it back every year. The flowers
are a beautiful fushcia. The plants
die off and look as dead as a door nail as the saying goes, but if the soil is kept slightly moist the plant
will come back as a little leaf which grows rapidly. It is such a joy to see a little baby sprouting up. Last year I forgot to water one of mine for quite awhile, and thought for sure I killed it, but it came back just as lovely as ever.
