Jacobs Ladder (purple)


By Llew

I've just got myself a purple one of these that i've just potted on. It's about 3 inches high but the leaves are green. Will they go purple as they get older or have I got a green one here?

Pic is what it's supposed to be.

That depends - was it a description of the flowers, Llew? I am just wondering, really!

Nope. Defo supposed to be purple leaves. I have emailed and asked the seller, but had no reply and I really am wondering if I've got the wrong plant.

I'll go find a pic and add it.

I got my answer but if I'd been patient a little longer, I'd have seen for myself, lol. The leaves are getting much darker and the new growth is coming through dark too.
