Family: Amaranthaceae
Cultural Code: HP what's this?

Marvelous "Pygmy Parrotleaf" with very delicate-appearing spatulate rose-colored leaves forming a lilac cloud of foliage on the twiggy bushy plantlets; very distinctive lilac tone rendered quite delicate in tone by the filigreed character of the thin leaves closely intersticed--nonetheless an easily grown, quite vigorous Victorian clone unbeaten when you need a showy but easily blending ornamental to beautifully cascade from your urn, basket, or windowbox and make absolutely no fuss about it. Our customers proclaim this to be one of the ultimates in "spill" plants for mixed containers--most successful because its erubescent colors are decidedly heightened when grown in full sun.

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.
