Good afternoon,

My husband and I picked up three of these plants at a church sale in Seville, Ohio. I am hoping that someone will identify it as I have no idea how to care for it, or even if it is an annual or perennial.

do a google image search and you can read about it...
Mine is happy in my master bathroom on the counter...
I don't have house plants but this one i like and it does well in a pot...let it dry out, very dry, and water once a month..or find what does well in your climate...
Mine is about 5 yrs old without much tending or care.
(i do have a skylight in that bathroom)
