Velvet Plant. Purple Velvet Plant, Royal Velvet Plant, Velvet Tree

This showy plant from Java is grown for its handsome velvety 5 inch leaves and stems that are covered in dense purple hairs.

Clusters of tiny, daisy-like, orange-yellow flowers appear in winter. It dislikes extreme heat or cold and needs winter protection below 40F. Plant it as a soft purple accent in a tropical garden bed. USDA zones 10 - 12.
