Beautiful groundcover plant with unique foliage colors. New growth begins pink, fades out to white, and then develops green as the leaves mature. This plant may do well in full sun further north, but in Florida with our light, sandy soil it definitely prefers to be shaded through the middle of the day during the hot months. It is ideal for groundcover under trees where grass and other plants will not grow well. In winter with the sun at a lower angle it gets more light, so as long as the weather is mild it keeps growing and putting on its pretty color display.
