Great! It's such a neat plant! I used to have one, but I gave it away a long time ago.

Alexandramou:

Is it available for sale there?

The pink and white are common here...the red one is very rarely available in nurseries.

I'm going to have a look, are they on sale all year there or is it a specific season? I really like the white one.

Alexandramou:

Yes, they're available all year. They bloom off-and-on throughout the year here.

I like the pink one best--the white ones tend to look dirty, here. I'm still looking for the red one!

In the 1970's the red variety used to be commonly available...now, it's impossible to find. I don't even see any growing anywhere, either. I'm not sure why.
