Acalypha wilkesiana 'Petticoat'
|With unusual flowers and brilliantly colored leaves, these large, tropical shrubs are grown as annuals and greenhouse plants. They thrive in hot, humid summer climates. Use as dramatic accents in the garden or in containers. Grow in full or part sun. Pinch or cut back to control height. Plant cuttings taken in mid-summer. In autumn, cut back and pot as houseplants. Grown outside all year round in warm winter climates.
Not for the horticulturally timid, its ruffled leaves are edged in creamy yellow. Even more striking in masses. Thrives in full sun.
