Such a vibrant color, love this. Persian shield. Persian Shield is known botanically as Strobilanthes dyerianus. It is native to Burma and has 8-inch-long leaves that are iridescent in shades of purple, lilac and pink, with purple-maroon on the undersides. If those colors aren't awesome enough, the foliage looks like it has a light coat of silver electroplated to it. Although newly in fashion. the plant has been used in gardens since Victorian times.

orange slices to attract butterflies (it also attracts Baltimore Orioles) - rondelles d'orange pour attirer les papillons
Garden idea to attract butterflies.
In the spring and summer, attract butterflies (and some fruit loving birds!) to your outdoor space for observation by stringing up sliced oranges. For a better perch, use a piece of garden wire or coat hanger instead of string. The juice won't travel up the string and attract extra ants, and it will hold up better in the wind.
