This beauty is a survivor! I first saw her, downtown in the city,hanging from lamppost pots. At that point, I didn’t even know what she was. I called the Public Works department of the city and got in touch with the horticulturist. The city was preparing to dispose of all of the hanging plants, and just gave me two of them!

I originally bought this plant to keep inside, but my mom hi-jacked it from me, and it became an outdoor plant!
It grows very easily and FAST during the summer when it’s outside. So I recently took a cutting to see if it will grow the same indoors. It also blooms beautiful flowers when it’s thriving and happy!
