Info

Foliage is splashed, streaked, and spotted with colors ranging from deep burgundy to a reddish-pink. A great splash of color from spring to fall. In full sun the reds, burgundies, and coppers deepen, whereas in shade you see more pinks, greens, and coppers.The Copper Plant's beautifully colored foliage lends itself to tropical landscapes while it's heat and sun tolerance make it suitable for even some of the most difficult areas so long as it's basic requirements are met. Foliage color is often most intense where they get at least 6 hours of direct sun per day. Provide your Copper Plants with average water in an average to well draining moderately rich soil for best results.
