Description How to Grow Delivery Reviews
 With flowerheads that look like deep pink pipe cleaners, Acalypha 'Mini Red' is a plant that will get plenty of attention from visitors to your garden. Perfect for a contemporary or exotic themed planting scheme, it can be planted in a hanging basket, or planter, in a full sun position. Firetail has a rounded, compact habit with weeping branches, and flowers profusely throughout the summer.

Acalypha 'Mini Red' is tender, requiring a minimum temperature of 10C (50F). It is best grown in a container that can be moved indoors for the winter months. Alternatively grow it in a warm conservatory or heated greenhouse. Height and spread: 45cm (18").
