Purple Knight Alternanthera – another one of Sally’s favorites!


We planted the Purple Knight Alternanthera, in the Joseph Coat family, under our Texas Sabal Palms out front of our home on Catalina Street. It has proven its worth to me! It takes wind and sun, gives a pretty  contrast to green lawn with it’s burgundy foliage, doesn’t have any major insect or fungus challenges, and if planted in the right spot, can grow to it’s maximum height of 24″ or can be pruned shorter! It has been named by the Texas Department Of Agriculture as a Texas Superstar and definitely a superstar in my book!
