Oh, Yay!!! Thank you! I've never heard of this one, but now know how to track it down. Gotta have that! It is just incredibly striking.

You are welcome, they really do have stunning foliage don't they? I used to have A. wilkesiana 'Mosaica': Joseph's Coat (Acalypha wilkesiana 'Mosaica') that was killed by winter freezes two years ago. Sad

I hope you will add your photo's to the database, there are currently no pic's: Copper Leaf (Acalypha wilkesiana)

I will now that I know what it is. We'd like to do another house and it would be different in nature and style from what we've done here. I think I would actually design around these colors to make full use of this plant. Black, brown and Autumn colors are my favorite colors.This plant is just custom made for me...lol..

Hetty: Love the colors in that one! I don't see it listed in the database so you really should add it: http://garden.org/plants/search/text.php?q=Copperleaf
