We were given this old fashioned pass-along plant by Jimmy Turner of the Dallas Arboretum. White Variegated Alternanthera is a once-popular now hard-to-find Victorian bedding plant that I think has a place in today’s gardens. Its highly variegated foliage looks superb spilling over the edge of a mixed container or raised bed. With its trailing habit, excellent heat tolerance, and loads of white color, this Alternanthera can definitely fill a niche in the summer garden.
