Acalypha wilkesiana obovata cristata Acalypha wilkesiana obovata cristata
Stock Number: 40015
Availability: In Stock
Family: Euphorbiaceae
Cultural Code: TGH what's this?

Spectacular ruffled & fluted "Copper Swirl" leaves serrated & highlighted in pink, bronze, red.  It was famous even in late Victorian gardening as the splendid and dramaticly foliaged "Ceylon Plant." More demanding of warmth and full sun than the similar 'Hoffmanii.' Certainly (and deservedly) the most popular color and disposition of the tribe being the ultimate "flounced skirt" foliage for your over the top urn designs, window dressings or conservatory showoff.

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.
