Just bought this plant the other day and thought to put it in the garden but decided that it looked better in a pot. The plant originates from Madeira and the Canary Isles but likes cooler climes - thank goodness for that. Aberdeen is definitely cooler climes but it was 17 degrees Celsius today so getting warmer. Not quite summer yet though. Love the purple and white colour of this plant adds a bit of colour to the garden.
