C. p. 'Copper Leaf' is being grown here in a bed in Allan Gardens, a public conservatory maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Toronto. It makes an excellent subject for interior tropical landscapes. Note the yellow Columnea behind the Chrysothemis, and the Saintpaulia species in front. A closeup of the plant can be seen here, and an antique print here.
