This is a nice NOID, but the foliage last year and this year has not had good color. So it is scheduled for new re-potting with new potting soil. It has the darkest foliage of any of the Achimenes I grow when it's growing right, but it looked like it had Roundup damage or an iron deficiency early and the plant growth never quite overcame that look. It still did pretty well and has one of the longest periods of blooms of those I'm growing. It's just now beginning to wind down, though the 50F temp this morning will probably speed it towards dormancy.
