InfoVery unique small plant with heart shaped with very piecrust edges.
The shiny, round to ovate leaves have margins like piped icing, deliciously long tips, and sugar-coated backs.
Hybridizers smile when they see the reddish scapes sprinkled with purple flowers because 'Candy Dish' passes dainty ruffles on to its progeny.
