Availabilty: In Stock
The Alternanthera amoena Purple Splash, or the Purple Splash Ground Cover as it can be more commonly known, is a very pretty evergreen with striking foliage that is predominantly purple with splashes of bright pink and green that holds colour year round. Small white and pink flowers arrive during the warmer months, making it ideal for mass planting to cover large areas with colour and contrast.
Only growing up to 400 mm tall and a quick-grower, it is ideal for use as a colourful border plant, rockeries, container planting for patios, mass planting, colour contrast, layering and ground cover.
Hardy once established - prune regularly to maintain a compact form. Frost sensitive; sheltered position. Most soils; mulch in summer. Prefers full sun, tolerates part shade.
