i've never seen a plant like this my friend alison offered it to me when we had them over for dinner a couple of weeks ago and thought it was so original and beautiful . was afraid it would not last long as it is so exotic looking. it was just this paper thin "flower" type of thing in a pink very surprising for nature. well, when i came back from morocco it had flowered! purple flowers coming out of this thin pink oval shaped flower. isnt it beautiful? and so unique. any ideas of what it is?
