Hi,

On the image at the top of the blog entry linked to below, there is a plant with pink foliage that I would like to identify. I've looked up images of every plant mentioned in the blog post, but did not see one that looks similar.

I think it my be an Amaranthus, but I am not sure (and if so, what kind?) and hoped someone here could identify it.

Here is a link that might be useful: Garden of Eaden blog

It could be a Coleus or Alternanthera.

I don't think it's coleus, but alternanthera looks promising. Thanks for the information, purpleinopp!

You're welcome. If the picture were clearer & closer, it might be easier to tell. If you just want to repeat the effect, also look at Hypoestes, easy to find. There are over 1400 different coleus, just FYI... Have you emailed the author of the article?

The pink plant is blood leaf iresine
