Second one is definitely a leopard plant. I have mine planted under the shade of a variegated ginger and its been blooming and growing wonderfully.

Sorry, getting dark out, couldn't take a good shot, plus the bed needs to be redone.

Doesn't reach quite as low of temps in Pinellas as Deland, but yeah, the Leopard Plant is quite a trooper and should survive to 10 or 15F, I believe. Just don't let it get too much sunlight.

thanks, went back and got the other one.

Nice score! Leopard plant so awesome - I have 3. Took that cold winter a couple years ago no problem, and the yellow flowers feed bees and butterflies. The clumps expand slowly and no pests seem to bother them. An excellent shade plant!

I have one with green leaves that have yellow dots. It's pretty even without the flowers. :o)
