Alternanthera dentata ‘LRU30’

Little Ruby™ Alternanthera dentata ‘LRU30’, is a compact form of Alternanthera and is approximately a third the height of the common form. While it is suited to warmer climates it will grow in areas prone to light winter frost provided it is given protection, or plant in a sheltered micro-climate. During very hot dry weather some watering will help it remain lush and looking great. In all climates it will benefit from being cut back at the end of winter well after the last frost to encourage fresh spring growth.
