Or maybe amethyst rings for those green fingers?

That's another plant that does not like the heat and humidity in Florida, or maybe it is just the hot nights. Whatever, I have no luck with them. If I did, I would fill all the spaces in my rock garden with them!

It is extremely hardy but I have had no luck growing them outdoors. Just too wet, they dissolve as soon as the autumn rains arrive.
