One of our signature plants from last year: this shrubby member of the potato family from Madagascar has lavender potato flowers set off by large, firey orange spines on the greyish green leaves and stems. Awesome as a specimen plant in a patio planter. Guaranteed to get the attention of EVERY guest to your garden.
