Alternanthera ficoidea 'Christmas Tree'

Used in classic Victorian gardens to create geometric carpet patterns, these low-growing, colorfully leafed and flowered bedding plants can be sheared into shapes. Bright yellow, red and pink markings on leaves can clash with other plants. Best with other bright colors or in window boxes or pots. Flowers are minuscule and plants are usually sheared before the flowering stage. Perennial in warm, frost-free areas, they like full sun. They are treated as annuals in cold areas, where they overwinter as houseplants.
