Not the money tree, the one on the right, both from Lori's swap last spring.
It looks like barleria cristata (Philippine violet) to me. if so, then blue (or white) flowers should begin appearing soon.
I agree its barleria and should start blooming any day now.
Thanks girls, I can't wait for the blooms :-) Will it tolerate full sun here? Since it is attractive to bees, butterflies and hummers I'd like to move it outside the pool cage.
Tom, didn't I send you cuttings of this plant, last fall? It's a beautiful plant and re-seeds readily - you'll love it.

No, it wasn't me. I got this plant at Lori's swap only because no one else wanted it and I can't stand the thought of euthanized plants! Potted it up twice and it's clearly been happy, I can't wait for it to bloom :-)
It takes full sun in my yard. I have it on the western side of my green house. It freezes in the winter but comes back in the spring and I have a few new plants this year from reseeding.
Mine is shaded by a big Magnolia tree, so it's in shade.
Good to know it can handle both sun and shade. Mine has not started blooming yet, I can't wait! Any pest problems outside?
No pest problems that I have noticed. I can be pretty inattentive though but I think I would have remembered anything major. :-)
