Peperomia caperata

Today I planted a very interesting looking new addition to the pond area. My new addition is called a Peperomia capertata. The leaves of this exotic plant are amazing looking, like something from prehistoric time. The leaves have a silver metallic ripple which adds to it's uniqueness. I planted this near the pond because it is a shade plant and the pond is in the shade. I am very impressed with the look of this exotic plant known as the Peperomia capertata and I am happy to have it in my garden. Here are some pictures so you can judge for yourself!!
