You're going to LOVE this plant for sure. Not sure if you know it or not but it grows from tiny little bulbs in the shape of a carrot. What I like about this plant is that if it gets floppy and untidy looking, you can cut it all back to the soil and it all grows back very quickly. You might enjoy the solid green variety which has a white flower and also the one called Iron Cross which has brown in the center of the leaves and the flowers are pink. They look fabulous all planted together in one pot.
