Bushy Bloodleaf

This houseplant has grown by leaps and bounds on the patio and needs me to whack it in half before it collapses under its own weight. Some people call this Beefsteak Plant, another form I also have is called Chicken Gizzard plant, and then I have a yellow, white, and green leaf type. They are all in the Iresine family and I like them all since I am a nut for variegated plants.

I don't have one of these plants! I am going to look for one next time. I need some color in my patio rather than the standard green house plants!
