Can you identify this plant?
Lorraine, your plant is a dorstenia bahiensdis, or common name mattress button plant.
Thanks Adrienne for your information. The plant originally came from my father"s garden where he grew it in a fernery. I know dad would have been upset to know that the nurseryman thought it an ugly plant as I know dad really liked the depth of the purple colour that the "buttons" produced in its shaded position.
