oh, Meanie - thank you so much. Sorry it took me so long to see the picture - was working this weekend:(
Yes, it really looks better with flash. My garden centre doesn't sell it in pots, but found some seeds today, lol

I don't think it's 'Harlequin'. Think it is hirta. Will check tomorrow. There is a seed stand with 'exotic' seeds on it at my work. Should I buy them and start my little nursery? lol

One of the soft leafed ones, so may be a little tender. Mine took a bit of a kicking last winter, so I'll be lifting it and putting it into the cold frame.

Thanks Delonix - I think that this is one of the ones that may struggle in your climate!

Meanie:

It may not. I've never seen one before.

It may do well in shade on the north side of a building or house...especially close to the coast (where it's usually cooler).

Hitting the heights again Meanie! Flash sure does the trick.
