Acalypha monostachya 'Raspberry Fuzzies'
Raspberry Fuzzies Acalypha

This groundcover has copper colored foliage and unique fuzzy hot pink to red flowers, blooming profusely all through the warm months. It is deciduous, and should be cut back once frost has nipped the foliage. It is quite root hardy, and will flush out quickly once the weather warms up. It thrives in full sun and reflected heat locations and tolerates poor soils. It is native to the Chihuahuan desert.
