A shrub from Mexico, which behaves more like a herbaceous perennial in the UK, tending to die back to ground level in winter. Grown mainly for its exotic foliage - the leaves are heart-shaped, and purple-stained stipules (leaf-like appendages along the stem) add extra interest. Then, in late summer, yellow pea-like flowers appear to complete the display. Likes full sun, well-drained soil and a sheltered warm spot. In cold areas mulch well, or grow in a pot so the plant can be over wintered frost free.
