Persian Shield Shimmers In The Shade

The glimmering metallic-purple sheen of these beautiful plants in the shade of my huge pecan tree really dazzles me. Their origin is tropical Burma (Myanmar) not Persia (modern day Iran) so whoever named them didn't know geography very well, but I say thanks to whoever brought them to America.
