If you're looking for a stylish garden this summer, think tropical.

Where it's hardy (USDA Zone 10 and 11), the copperleaf, or copper plant, is an evergreen shrub. Elsewhere, it's an old-fashioned tropical houseplant that has found its home as an annual in the summer landscape.
Many selections are available and all have vivid foliage colors, ranging from dark plum reds to shades of pink, red, orange-red and cream. Some have large heart-shaped leaves, while others have smaller, serrated leaves. Acalypha makes a striking accent plant and can be used in the landscape or in containers. Hardy to USDA Zone 10-11.
