Originally an African species, this plant was found near a Mexican volcano of that name. Makes a large leafy plant to 6 feet, with leaves up to 6" long, bronzy colour on the top and purple underneath. Great for bedding out with Cannas and Bananas as it should like the same conditions. Until more is known it would be best to keep somewhere frost free for the winter.
