Chinese Fringe Flowers
Q.

Plant name?

Zone central florida | sillieputtie added on June 28, 2012 | Answered

I have several plants (alike) that I can't remember the name. It sounds like "petaluma". I am trying to look for information on how to make it grow well. I have them in two different spots but all get direct sun and there is a bubbler at every plant for water. Would you know the name? The leaves are a deep burgundy color and the flowers are small and pink. Thanks for any help.
