Esperanza - Back From The Dead

The Esperanza plant literally means "hope" in Spanish and I can vouch for the hope this plant represents. Not too long ago, I had given it up for dead, having died in the sub-freezing winter of 09-10; however, it began to show it's beautiful leaves recently and then came the buds and the flowers.

Thank goodness these plants have made a come-back. They are so beautiful with their jagged leaves and tubular flowers in lemon yellow. Enjoy!
