New AV from Home Depot
We stopped at HD yesterday. Normally I don't look through their AV's, but decided, what the heck..
While browsing, the usual/common for IL AV's were on display..That is, all but one.
I realize there are thousands of AV's, but perhaps one of you (experts, lol) can ID this guy for me. Av is a standard or possibly large. It's in a 4" pot with a no-drainage outer pot that's gotta go.
Leaves: Foliage, top/dark medium green, semi-round shape..Stems and undersides including veins, red/purple. Leaves are approximately 2-3". Some smaller.
Flowers: Flowers are single, (maybe what they call star-shaped?) Outer petals medium to deep purple, (NOT blue, truly purple) midway to bottom of flower/petals white, looks like white paint splashed on lower petals. (not literally, lol) I can't recall what the little thing inside the flower is called, but it's yellow. (maybe stamin or pistal, need to learn the difference between the two.)
This Av has about 50 closed buds, and 6-8 opened and semi-opened..I'm sooo happy I checked; price was only 1.99.
I'm going to try dl'ing pics to computer, which would be much easier ID'ing by sight, than description.
If anyone knows the name, can you please let me know? Thanks, Toni
