Alternanthera, Purple Prince

Short Description

Mounding, spreading groundcover is full-on purple from the get-go, with hues intensifying in the sun.

Full Description

The star attraction of this Latin American tropical stunner is the ravishing, splashy, colorful foliage. ‘Purple Prince’ rolls out a magic carpet of burgundy-purple leaves complemented by ruby rose undersides. Mounding, spreading, non-flowering 10-16 inch groundcover is full-on purple from the get-go, with hues intensifying in the sun. Cascades happily from a mixed container, or mingles prettily with marigold ‘Strawberry Blonde’ in the sunny border. Thrives in full blast heat and sun; requires little water, disease-resistant.
