Thank you. Its a plant that's not even tropical. Some people say its taken Z8 winters. I don't know about that.
Even the leaves look unreal. Green spoons!

Yet it looks tropical I like the leaves too
Good to know it can survive colder climates thanks Stan for that.

I've been told that there is a cultivar of this plant that will and does flower well in the UK. Mini..something. In pots it flowers also.
I have the old fashioned species kind that tries men's patience. Of course once planted,no choice!
