Iresine lidenii - Bloodlef and Pink Lantana


Iresine lidenii - Bloodlef and Pink Lantana (Iresine lidenii - Bloodlef and Pink Lantana)

The Bloodleaf shrubs are growing wild...I have to cut them back constantly. The Pink Lantana grows wild in my neighborhood. This one popped up about 4 years ago...and I didn't pull it our fast enough, now it part of the front yard's garden. Photo taken Mar. 11, 2013.

We grow the Iresine every year, we take cuttings in the winter and then grow them on for the summer.

I have so many Iresine lindenii plants. It's very widely grown here as a sub-shrub filler in many gardens.

It is super easy to grow from cutting, right? Many times I just stick them into the ground and water, and they root.

Thats true they do take easily here in a bit of compost..

And they grow super fast, also! This plant posted was a cutting 3 years ago...and it's been cut back numerous times. It can grow to 6ft (2m) tall if not cut back.
