Acalypha wilkesiana cv.

             Acalypha wilkesiana cv. (Euphorbiaceae)
This is a new one for me which I bought last week and as it came unlabelled I could take a wild guess and say this is the variety 'Sunset Hue' which it matches from photos I have looked at.
As coloured foliage plants go Acalyphas are more hardy than Crotons for growing outside the sub-tropic regions. Being in the Euphorbia family they have all the requirements for adapting to low water and less favourable growing conditions including windy salt spray coastal ones. 
This one adds to my small collection of varieties some of which I will have available for sale in the near future.
