Old classic cultivar with pointed copper leaves with creamy margin. This cultivar is hardier than others to cold. Acalypha cv. Marginata does not really take frost but it grows outdoors on the warmer Mediterranean coasts and it is often planted in the Canary Islands at higher elevation. It probably grows at cooler temperatures than the "average acalypha".
We ship a robust, sun-grown plant of at least 5 months, cultivated in a 16-20 cm pot. This is a fast growing species and it is produced once or twice a year so the specimens can be 40-100 cm tall. We will always try to select a compact robust plant for you. In most cases we will prune the plant before shipping. This is because some plants are too tall to fit in the box and also because the upper branches are too tender, so pruning will be helpful during the transit. It will surely grow back soon because it is a fast growing plant, commonly pruned in gardens. Depending on the season, this plant can be sent bare-rooted, with the roots wrapped in moist sphagnum or perlite. Be prepared to plant it in a pot of at least 18 cm, filled with good garden soil and place it in full sun, at 16-30 C. We ship worldwide.
