Go to Google Images and enter Strobilanthes dyerianus
Common name is Persian Shield.
Not hardy in most of U.S. but probably a perennial in your area. Can easily
grow to 4 foot height. Responds well to pruning to increase branching. May
need some shade from afternoon sun in the South.

non-direct sun/bright indoor plant with green and purple pointed
leaves. Here is a picture of it:
I want to find the name so that I can find the correct care instuctions
for this plant. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give.
