Acalypha reptans Stephie


Acalypha reptans Stephie

Are you looking for ground cover with some pizzazz? Here’s Acalypha reptans Stephie - who’s also known as the Lance Leaf Copper Plant.

Stephie creates carpet-like groundcover with adorable little fluffy, tail-like flowers in bright, cheerful pink. She’ll form a hardy outdoor carpet and grows easily in tricky spots such as rock walls and rockeries. If you’re feeling creative try her in a hanging basket or window box.

Stephie is a tough girl who can withstand coastal sprays, frost, drought and winds once established. Talk about multi-tasking!

Everyone needs this hardy little plant to brighten their outdoor spaces. We wouldn’t be without her.

Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: I’m a bright and happy groundcover, look unusual in hanging baskets, and cascade over a rock wall. My bright colour makes me a good choice for tropical gardens.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 25cm high by 60cm wide. 
  • Where to place me: Full sun or part shade.
  • How far to space me: For tight groundcover give me 25cms
  • Soil Conditions. I like any type of soil except waterlogged.

To the best of our knowledge, this plant is non-toxic to cats & dogs

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.

Please take care when choosing your plants. Some plants are poisonous and individuals may be more sensitive or react differently
