Attention Please!  
Striking, fantastic foliage in shades of burgundy and purple with ruby undersides really grab your attention in both as a border or focal point in a landscape bed or in planters.  This heat lover grabs the spot light in your garden areas all summer long where other plants wither away. This mid size grower spreads a wide 24"-30" filling in an area quickly.  While this plant will perform anywhere from part sun to sun but the colors are best in sunnier locations. This tough little plant is easy-to-grow and maintain as it is heat and humidity tolerant.
