New info on Methodist Plant

soxxxxAugust 28, 2011

On the Southern Gardening Forum on Aug 14 nancybea atlanta ga posted that she thinks the Methodist plant is Achimenes.

I googled the photos. It has lots of common names. I am not familiar with the plant or the names.

Here is a link that might be useful: Achimenes ...
