They are such beauties - one of my all-time favourite shrubs for my dry garden. Particularly love the colours on this one.

Thanks! I really love Acalyphas...they are my
favorite variegated plant! This is probably one
of the best variegated forms of Acalypha...the
color variations on this one plant is unbelievable.

I think the reason why they are so widely grown
here is because of their drought tolerance...and
their beauty.

Same reason they're loved here - such a great plant in the dry and the wet. I'll be looking for this one - it's got some great orange and red tones.

This Acalypha has orange, red, gold, yellow, dark maroon, brown, pink, dark green and light green and more colors...on its leaves. It is a pretty spectacular cultivar.
