Hygrophila pinnatifida


This interesting variety from India has some highly unusual attributes. It has been commercially available for only a few years and is finding more and more use in fascinating landscapes. Not only are the leaves a very attractive rust brown to olive green, they also have a lovely feathered shape. Combine with simple plant shapes to really highlight the ornamental leaves. These plants also have the ability to grow on rocks and roots, which is completely atypical for stem plants.
