Acacia redolens is a low growing and wide spreading ground cover.

Although Acacia redolens is quite drought resistant, it also tolerates periodic flooding, and a number of landscape architects have used it successfully in retention basins. This groundcover acacia has proven its value time and again as a first class slope coverage for hot dry banks.

This plant requires regular irrigation during the hot summer months.

Acalypha godseffiana, Copper Leaf, Beefsteak Plant, Fire dragon, Jacobs coat, Match-me-if-you-can, Three-seeded Mercury

Acalypha godseffiana

Copper Leaf, Beefsteak Plant, Fire dragon, Jacobs coat, Match-me-if-you-can, Three-seeded Mercury
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Origin: Fiji
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliageSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeSeaside, salt tolerant plant

A very colorful tropical shrub grown for its attractive reddish leaves. Beautiful foliage of mixed shades of red, yellow and green. Leaves, much smaller than ordinary copperleafs, are orange/red in the full sun and mostly variegated/green in the shade. The more sun the more color the leaves will get. Fast growing. A native of the East Indies and the Pacific, this is one of the most striking foliage shrubs and is widely used by tropical gardeners. Cultivars of A. godseffiana are found in a wide variety of colors: green and white, green and yellow, red, bronze, copper, or brown. The leaves also vary in form, some being flat and others undulating, while the flowers are inconspicuous. In a garden, where they are often used as informal hedges or in massed beds, all Acalypha species require full sun, well-drained soil, and careful pruning to prevent them from becoming leggy. They are easily propagated by cuttings.
