Dear Lauw and Mary Sue, Well now, that's interesting! I do not have records of who gave me this species. I've had it for ten years and it is anything but weedy. It's quite attractive and stays in its same pot. If it is O. caprina I guess the lesson is - climate makes a difference. As you know, one or two species that are weedy here are no problem in Northern California and, maybe also, in the south of France. But this one, if it is O. caprina, behaves inversely to that. It may have to do with the availabilty of water. The reverse side of the leaves is the same color as on the top, green. Andrew San Diego Hello Mary Sue and Andrew, I got the same here, they came from you in 2001 (!!) under the reference mv4674. (revers side of the leaves are purple) It has become a real weed here and try to eliminate it. I have kept the same name, but i am not sure if it is correc. Interesting to know what the other members think.
