Small, compact bedding plant that grows 50cm x 90cm. Great for adding a colour splash to your garden. Little Ruby is a small and compact form of Alternanthera dentata. Plant out in full sun or part shade, in a protected spot in the garden. Little Ruby a bit more cold tolerant than its parent plant, but prefers a warm, sunny, humid environment for it to look its very best. It will not be the happiest in out Winters, but if planted in the right spot, it makes a comeback stronger than before in the warmer months.
Use a clay/compost/rockdust soil mix if planting in sandy soils. Add a slow release fertiliser and water well.
