This plant grows naturally along the central section of the Gulf Coast in the United States. It has
pink flowers with a white throat, though it never flowered for me.
I was given this piece by Martin Cheek in 1979 and it prospered for several years, but I don't have it now.
When I moved away from my heated greenhouse, I gave it away to a friend with better growing facilities.

...and earlier this year I was given this one.

It has grown far better since I put a cover over it to boost the humidity and raised the water level. Survived the winter without
damage when temperatures in the greenhouse dropped to -5degC.
