This South American native will put your dancing skills to shame. Mariposa has three purple leaves at the end of each green stem. Her foliage moves gracefully with the sun, resembling butterflies fluttering their delicate wings. Come night, Mariposa closes her leaves and her five-petaled flowers to rest up for tomorrow's dance.
