Alternanthera dentata

Purple Knight

This is a striking plant with dense smoky purple foliage, with the plant not exceeding more than 50 cm in height. It is gorgeous as a contrast plant in a sunny bed or a container when combined with grey foliaged plants. It grows very quickly in dappled sunshine as well as full sun. ‘Purple Knight’ is very heat tolerant and tough so find a place for this great new plant in your spring garden.
