 Alocasia sanderiana, Alocasia amazonica
Family: Araceae
Kris plant
Origin: Phillippines
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftShadeSemi-shadeBog or aquaticOrnamental foliageDeciduousSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

A beautiful plant with flat, V-shaped leaves, deeply scalloped along the margins. The color is shiny, jet-black, with bold white veining. An excellent species for interior, landscape or terrarium use. Forms dense clusters, about 24in tall when mature. Warm, humid, shady conditions are required throughout the summer and plants need an abundance of water when growing. When the leaves fade in fall, less water is required, and when they have died, the soil is moistened once in a while. Care should be taken when planting rhizomes, the top of rhizomes should be planted above the soil line or the leaves could decay at the base. Alocasia sanderiana are propagated by the division of rhizomes in spring.

Alternanthera dentata 'Brazilian Red Hots'
 Alternanthera dentata
Family: Amaranthaceae
Joseph's Coat, Calico plant, Copperleaf, Bloodleaf, Joyweed, Parrot leaf
Origin: West Indies to Brazil
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersOrnamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Grown exclusively for its colorful foliage - rich purple to burgundy leaves. Forms spreading foliage mounds to 12-30" tall. Common names - Joseph's coat, copperleaf, calico plant, bloodleaf, joyweed and parrot leaf - all in reference to the often brilliantly colored leaves which provide foliage contrast to gardens and container plantings.Best foliage colors are developed in full sun. It grows better in organically rich and consistently moist, well-drained soils, But not completely dry out. May also be grown indoors as a houseplant as long as it is sited in a bright, sunny location and soils are kept moist. Plants may be grown from seed by starting them indoors in late winter and transplanting them outdoors after last frost date. Pinching stems or shearing will keep plants compact and bushy.

Alternanthera sp., Bloodleaf

Click to see full-size image
Alternanthera reinecki 'Splendida'
 Alternanthera sp.
Family: Amaranthaceae
Bloodleaf
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunSemi-shadeBog or aquaticRegular waterOrnamental foliageFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

While some of the better-known species are aquatic plants, most are terrestrial. They take many forms, from prostrate to erect to floating.

The flowers of this plant are very insignificant, bearing small bracts on a single stalk. These are best cut off, to allow the plant to concentrate on itís foliage. An attractive border plant or groundcover. About 10cm high, 1m spread.

Although Alternanthera can usually only be found during the warmer months in nurseries, it can be grown all year round. Grows best in full sun and in good soil this plant will respond handsomely. Fertilizing should be done with a water soluble variety so as not to burn the foliage. Can be clipped occassionally to form a neat low edging.

Propagation can be done by dividing larger plants during the cooler months of the year.

Alternanthera dentata Ruby

Alternanthera ficoidea

Alternanthera reinecki -aquarium plant

Alternanthera sessilis -aquarium plant
