Oh last month I was in a favored nursery.. Getting some annuals... And saw the medenillas they had.. On my return I saw it again... And thought what a wonderful plant for inside.. With most plants having been mover outside for the summer.. A real tropical looking plant... With four Hugh flowers... I love it

It's a stunner, Gordon. I had those inside when I lived in England. They love a daily misting.

Those are gorgeous! Utterly GORGEOUS!
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

I found one last spring and bought it. Didn't think about keeping it indoors when it got chilly. I don't think it'll come back, but I found a great nursery that sells them near here. Gordon, your photos are tempting me to try another one. Love the kitties too!

How exciting, Gordon! And she's a looker! I got mine last Fall. It survived the winter in a warm greenhouse and has new growth on it. But it sits outside in the shade as I wait for a bloom.

Gordon if you move it outside make sure you put it in a sturdy wide bottom base. They can get top heavy very easily and a little bit of wind can knock them over.

Mine had 4 blooms on it, I had it on the porch, took it outside to give it a shower and set it on a table it was a little breezy and it tipped over..........broke two of the blooms off and a stem. Sad

God gave us wings. He just called them horses
