Common Name: "Razzle Dazzle" Plant
Availabilty: In Stock
Acalypha wilkesiana Raggedy Anne or the Razzle Dazzle Plant, as it is more commonly known, is a stunning fast growing evergreen with spectacular bright red and burgundy foliage that is highly unique in shape. Small white flowers bloom on long stems in the warmer months, rendering this ornamental perfect for specimen planting.
Growing to 2 m, the Razzle Dazzle Plant is ideal for hedging, contrast, and feature planting. For most effective hedging results, we recommend planting around 1 metre apart, and to prune twice a year in cooler climates to maintain colour and density. Layer this beauty in a hedge behind other plants for both height and gorgeous colour contrast.
Frost tender, mildly wind tolerant. Most well drained soils. Prefers mulching in Summer. Prefers full sun, but tolerates some shade.
