A mounding, dense plant presenting cupped and crinkled bright yellow leaves; small white flowers in summer; best color in full sun; great in containers. This plant does best in full sun to shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. Foliage color is most vivid in sun, colorful attractive foliage, shade-tolerant, low maintenance.
Alternantheras are grown exclusively for their colorful foliage. Spreading foliage mounds to 12-30" tall. Common names are all in reference to the often brilliantly colored leaves which provide foliage contrast to gardens and container plantings. Best foliage colors are developed in full sun. May also be grown indoors as a houseplant. Pinching stems or shearing will keep plants compact and bushy.

Alternanthera ficoidea Party Time

Click to see full-size image

Large splashes of bright pink adorn the leaves of this colorful Joseph's Coat. Party Time Alternanthera makes a statement spilling from containers, baskets, and in the garden where its color will show off until frost. These tender tropicals are great for shadier areas preferring midday and afternoon shade or light shade all day. Alternantheras are generally small, herbaceous, shrub-like, tropical perennials often selected for their great foliage color. They can be successfully overwintered in a well lit area indoors where not hardy. Alterantheras have been known to survive mild winters into zone 9 if given a protected site, an appropriate mulch, and excellent winter drainage.
