This pot plant is also known as Trailing Velvet Plant as its leaves are velvety. It is grown mainly for its velvety green and silvery pinnately veins, but the pink flowers are nice when many other plants have finished flowering. The underside of the leaves are purple with protruding veins. For me it flowers when the weather turns cold and this picture was taken in December from a plant that was outside in a sheltered place. It makes a wonderful house plant.
