This is a short-lived perennial that is often grown as an annual.
It is noted for its ornamental foliage. In its native habitat, it may grow up
to 5’ tall with spread to 3’ wide. Potted indoor plants grow much smaller,
typically being pruned to 12-18” tall. Red stems and oval purple-red leaves
(to 4” long) with notched tips and light red veins. Requires sun exposure for
best foliage color. Inconspicuous greenish-white flowers.
Keep soils consistently moist in the growing season, but reduce moisture
from fall to late winter. Pinch tips to maintain shape and to promote bushier
foliage. Also, consider pinching out any flower buds that may appear to
concentrate plant energies on the foliage.
Indoor plants may be taken outdoors in summer. When grown
outdoors as an annual, plants or late-summer stem cuttings
therefrom may be overwintered indoors. It is an excellent accent
plant for your garden.
