On separate visits Shirley and I both noticed this interesting foliage on a plant at the Japanese Gardens in San Antonio.
Can anyone identify it?
I can't identify it, Roselee, but I want one.......LOL> That is very pretty.
Acalypha wilkesiana forma circinata
Name that plant! forum got it quickly. It's a tropical.
Here is a link that might be useful: Name that plant
Thanks Shirley! Looks like it may be too tender for us other than as a hot house plant. It probably grows well at the 'Japanese Tea Gardens', which at one time was called 'The Sunken Gardens', because the rocks on all sides hold the heat.
Really, really pretty. I had only seen "copper plants" in the orange/gold colors until I saw this variety at a local nursery a few years ago and was very tempted to buy one, but didn't want another tender plant to bring indoors over the winter.
It's certainly very pretty. I'm with Molly, no more plants that need protection!
I have this one- the copper plant, I am going to try it in the ground- however I am south of SA and sometimes a 9 here microclimate wise
