    oriental sword

    Plant was taller and less colorful than I expected, probably because it was grown emersed. Adapting fast though, new leaves are pink. I'm hoping they don't grow as tall since I want this plant in the front.

    This is a beautiful and hardy sword. It is small enough to be in the foreground where you can fully appreciate the stunning pink-purple leaves.
