You only have to use your imagination a tiny bit to see the "bat" faces. This thing likes LOTS of water!

I agree
The bat face is truly a plant worth growing

It looks like the one I grew a couple years ago called Georgia Scarlet.

I did save seeds but was unsuccessful in getting them to germinate .
If anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears!
Of course all my seeds are now gone Confused
Keep believing ,hoping,and loving
all else is just existing.

I spotted one this week. Now I'm going to wait for a blossom and look more closely at it!
