Persian Shield from “A Garden Tour” of CSG

Persian Shield

One of the plants that Lachina Tyree sees, and then remarks upon, in Chapter Twenty-Seven, “A Garden Tour,” of Charming the Scottish Garden, was the Persian Shield. This is the Strobilanthes dyerianus, a tropical plant which genuinely does have beautiful wide, shiny purple stripes in its leaves.

There’s also a description of the Persian Shield on Wikipedia, and another photo.
