I am looking for a Acalypha. Only the true red variety with the broad heart shaped leaf. I believe this to be the Macafeana? I saw one growing at Legoland in Carlsbad. It was thriving and gorgeous.
It is difficult to find and I would appreciate any purchase information you can provide.

Thank you,
Patricia Layng

Finding Acalypha is extremely difficult; I can find only one source in California (if you can believe that!). Contact World Wide Exotics, 10260 Arnwood Rd., Lakeview Terrace 91342; phone 818-890-1915, fax 818-890-2776.

Best wishes with your garden!
