Acalypha is my favorite variegated shrub!

Don't you just love all the different varieties there are these days? They have the most amazing foliage compared to the old-fashioned wilkesianas.

Yes, there's a lot of varieties. I still love the varieties which have the huge leaves.

I have 4 varieties. My absolute favorite is Acalypha 'Jungle Dragon'.

Here's my plant:

Thanks! :>)

Yes, it's a fantastic variety and the leaves are huge to more than 15in/38cm long and half as wide.

I think I'll have to keep on the lookout for that one!

Good luck! :>)
