We’ve been growing False Eranthemums for years, even collecting different forms in other countries. This new Thai Bronze Selection, however, is one of the most colorful we’ve ever seen and has quickly shot to the upper regions of our favorite plant list. Its large shiny leaves have a brilliant and intense fiery red-orange to pinkish purple coloring, especially on the new growth. Some folks grow them as house plants but False Eranthemums should be used more in outdoor beds and containers for their tough heat-tolerant endurance. Color from foliage is often more dependable than color from flowers in our hot southern summers and this plant really delivers.
