    Very neat plant. Can't decide which I like the most --the leaf or the flower.

    Probably smaller than 4".

    The growths look like they are going to suffocate each other because they grow on top of each other now. There are at least two layers of growths underneath surface growths and what you see here is about 50% of the plant. A neat plant to grow IMO.

    I agree with Betty that the overall effect is really neat. Your description of its layered growth habits make it rather special since those are pretty leaves. AL
