The head of the 1ft 6in high Pollia condensata plant that ranges from Ethiopia to Angola and Mozambique, which scientists today revealed as the most colourful plant ever seen. Pollia condensata's vivid sparkle comes from the interaction of light with its skin, which contains layers of microscopic cellulose fibers. The effect is a metallic blue brighter than any yet described in a biological material.

Oxalis ♥ ~ Great plant and easy to take care of; it also blooms. You can purchase a pink flower variety or a white flower variety. ~ One of my favorites.

    Watch the watering. Seems to love to dry out and then have a good drink. I had one for 10 years until the bugs got it. Do not recommend taking it outside.

    Thanks for the good advise Patricia.

    I have a purple one and it is outdoors. I live in the tropics but it does not like direct sunlight.
