This will be superb this year lishy. My neighbour has this and I've asked for a cutting!

It is lovely, has to be my favourite plant to date... Will look forward to seeing your cutting grow :D

To be honest Lishy, I'd rather have the golden one. I do like nice bright foliage. Great to have some dark beauties too, but I think I probably have enough. I shall try to find a place for a golden one I think.

Ta! I did have one, but it died. It got waterlogged and rotted. I shall have to try again.
