Available in storeClose
For those seeking an unusual and somewhat dramatic foliar plant for the summer garden, consider 'Red Threads, ' aka Parrot Leaf (no idea why). This tender perennial has fine, narrow leaves that range in color from a deep burgundy to purplish-green hues, and form a mound six to twelve inches tall and up to 18 inches wide. This is an excellent choice as a filler/trailer in shorter container planters, adding color and textural interest. Use it in sunny borders as a contrast to brightly colored summer annuals or blooming perennials. 'Red Threads' can handle full sun and is tolerant of some shade.
