Rodriguezia decora ‘Marisa’ - unusual looking magenta speckled and white flowers

 Rodriguezia decora ‘Marisa’
     Native to Brazil, this is a neat plant that can form a large clump fairly quickly. When mounted, it becomes a floral mass in the fall and early winter when it regularly blooms. Our holiday open house (held the first week of December) is always graced by its blooms. Though the flowers are not large, they are numerous, very interesting and quite beautiful.
