Another hardy plant is Sanchezia. It has bright leaves with yellow markings , and the flowers somehow remind me of the tiger. But it is called the Zebra plant by some. This is also a native of Brazil.
Another flower from the Western hemisphere is this Barbados Bachelor's Button. I like the pretty violet colour, and its fruity scent when the leaves are bruised.
A native of India, this pink hibiscus flowers profusely throughout the year. It has long stems which can make it unsightly. There is also a white variety which is very popular for making a home made herbal shampoo.
The Chinese Hat , Holmskioldia is a native of the Himalayan regions of India. I saw these flowers on a hedge .
