Horticulture is God's gift to me. It is my escape from the things that would otherwise take a toll on life. It has taught me so many lessons.

I believe this plant is given this name because the leaves closes at dusk. #amazingplantfeature

Yes, very nice colors on the leaves and have always enjoyed how it got its name.

@lovestogarden it seems this plant is propagated by dividing its suckers.
