"Water Amaranth" Slim purple leaves on branching plant popular in aquatic gardens. Also known as A. sessilis, "Scarlet Hygrophila" Also offered as a. reineckii--as this suggests, a very popular water garden and bedding plant of uncertain origin; most dramatic as a hanging basket item, or (as is quite low statured) a cascading purple carpet in windowboxes or urns especially when the petite white cloverheads of blossoms start to appear.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
