Here's one you don't see every day.
I got this a little over a year ago out of a friend's NH greenhouse.

I always hold my breath when I buy a mature plant up there that I then move down to the Keys but this plant is loving it down here. Flowers 3-4 times a year for me.

A terrific species. And really forgiving. It grows warm, of course... that's its reputation. But I have one that is growing on my patio - winter night temps to the low 40's F or even a little lower, and it grows and blooms very well. I love the frequent flush blooms.
