I like this acalypha - haven't seen this one before.

It is common at most plant nurseries. It is a fairly new variety...maybe the last 10 years.

There's quite a few little spots in the driveway garden that need filling and I've been wondering what to plant - you've rekindled my interest in the acalyphas so I'm going to try to get as many different types as I can.

It sounds like a good plan. I know we have many dwarf forms available now.
They only grow to 1 meter / 3 feet tall. I have some posted in some of the San Diego Zoo photos.
