I just picked up a plant last night and the woman didn't know what it was. It is has a dark pink stem with green and yellow variegated leaves. It is very pretty. The woman said her mom had the plant and took clippings, which is what she was selling. Any thoughts on what it could be?




It looks a lot like an iresene to me but i cannot find one with this colouration on the web.

I agree, it does have the look of an Iresine.

Found it, or at least the same form as above. It just says Iresine herbstii, doesn't say the clone/variety though.

Thank you! I never expected answers so quickly. Now I can learn more about my beautiful new plant. ;o)
