PURPLE PRINCE Alternanthera seeds

Purple Prince is the first seed-grown alternanthera with a compact, spreading habit, 10 to 16 in. tall and 18 to 20 in. wide. Dark wine purple leaves with hot magenta pink undersides add an eye-catching punch of color to garden beds and containers.

Plant Purple Prince with bold flowers like zinnias and petunias, or mass to create a gorgeous small-scale seasonal ground cover. A tender perennial usually grown as an annual, Purple Prince withstands drought better than other alternantheras, and flourishes in heat and humidity with moderate watering. Tolerates partial shade — leaf color most vibrant in full sun.

Purple Prince alternanthera was a top performer in university trial gardens throughout the U.S., including Michigan State, Mississippi State, Georgia, Cornell and more, and earned a perfect score at the prestigious Trial Gardens of Penn State University.
