Pink Plume Plant in local nursery as...

Hi All
This is a great morning sun, or dappled shade plant. I've kept mine around for at least 5 years. I spotted it in a local nursery today. This year it's call The Flamingo Plant.

Here is a link if you are interested. Nothing like it for a conversation starter and it's pretty easy to keep happy too.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Pink Plume or Flamingo plant

I call mine Brazilian Plume Plant and have had them for years. They root easily so I keep several on hand just in case.

That looks like it would work in my front yard bed. It gets strong morning sun. When you say they root easily, does that mean they spread out, over time?

No, it means I take a cutting from the plant and root it. I have to grow them in containers here in North Texas.

I've found conflicting accounts of how tall they get. What's your experience?

In a container, not very tall.

Same with me: About 12-18 inches.
