Eye-catching colors accompany these vividly named varieties of alternanthera.
Generally bushy and exceptionally heat resistant, these varieties are evergreen and
will need to be planted on an indoor wall in cold climates. Being heat resistant does
not make alternanthera drought resistant though and they enjoy moderate watering in
well-drained media. They grow well in acidic, neutral or alkaline environments.
