"Can you identify this plant?"

 Are you able to identify this plant? The comment from my local nursery was " don"t know what it is, but it"s not very attractive is it?"

 Lorraine, your plant is a dorstenia bahiensdis, or common name mattress button plant.

 Thanks Adrienne for your information. The plant originally came from my father"s garden where he grew it in a fernery. I know dad would have been upset to know that the nurseryman thought it an ugly plant as I know dad really liked the depth of the purple colour that the "buttons" produced in its shaded position.
