Alternanthera ficoidea Watermelon
Perfect colorful plant for small spaces and ground cover in both sun or shade locations, this rare variety has amazing colorful foliage with a combination of red, pink, orange, yellow and green! Very rare form that we call "Watermelon". Alternantheras are grown exclusively for their colorful foliage - usually rich purple to burgundy leaves. 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.
