Plant Calculator


Acalypha wilkesiana 'Inferno' is commonly known as simply 'Inferno'.

This Fijian Fire Bush is a fast growing, dense evergreen shrub with spectacular burgundy foliage. It will adapt to a wide range of conditions but prefers a warm, sunny position – don’t we all?

He’s great for adding colour to your dull outdoor space as a hedge, screen, or feature shrub. You don’t need to put in much effort with Inferno once he’s established. He’ll just get on with looking good all year round.

If you can find his preferred sunny spot it’ll encourage more red tones into his leaves, whereas shady areas leave him greener. Either way, he’s a handsome chap with no issues and plenty of character.

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: I look good as relaxed hedging, a border shrub, and brighten a tropical garden. 
  • I grow to: 2m high, 1m wide 
  • Where to place me: I like full sun or part shade
  • How far to space me: About a metre is good with me.
  • Soil conditions: I’m not fussy but do like well-drained fertile soil. I’m drought tolerant once established.
