I personally am a sucker for anything that holds its color year round, including this one here.  Vernicosa has a very stiff and brittle leaf, meaning it should be handled with care.  This variety in particular is gorgeous in bloom with the purple foliage and red and white bloom.  Cannot handle direct light but needs strong indirect light to hold strong color
