5 of 5 Cute Little Plants November 28, 2015
Reviewer: Ramon L. Nelson from Willow Springs, MO United States  
These plants are so delightful, I bought several since they remind me so much about Lady Bugs: with their bright red backs and with white spots all over. They are on the smaller size but they do not lose any interest by taller plants beside them.
