Tri Color - Acalypha Wilkesiana | 30cm to 40cm
Acalypha Wilkesiana, also known as the Copper Leaf Plant, is an attractive, herbaceous perennial native to the South Pacific. This plant is prized for its brightly colored, copper to bronze leaves that add a bold pop of color to any garden or container. It is commonly used as a bedding plant, as a filler in mixed borders, or as a container plant.
- Light: Acalypha Wilkesiana prefers bright, indirect light and can tolerate full sun to partial shade. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, causing them to fade.
- Water: This plant is relatively drought-tolerant and should be watered only when the soil is partially dry. Over-watering can cause root rot and kill the plant.
- Soil: Acalypha Wilkesiana prefers well-draining soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. It can also tolerate slightly alkaline soil.
- Hardiness: This plant is hardy in USDA zones 10-11, where it can be grown outdoors year-round. In cooler climates, it can be grown as a container plant or in a greenhouse or conservatory.
- Pruning: Regular pruning can help maintain the plant’s shape and promote bushier growth. Prune back leggy stems to encourage fuller growth and deadhead spent flowers to promote reblooming.
- Toxicity: Acalypha Wilkesiana is toxic if ingested and can cause skin irritation in some individuals, so care should be taken when handling the plant and it should be kept away from pets and children.
Origin: Pacific Island
