Re: Alternanthera 'Red Threads'

Thanks, Kitty.  I'll see if I can find space for in under the lights,
but I may not have room.  It's been nicde this summer, so I 
guess I shouldn't expect more of it.

The genus Alternanthera, does have annuals, perennials, and shrubs, so I 
took a further look and found:

Your Red Threads is a perennial (tender, though, Zone 11) so you probably 
could take it into the house for the winter.  It may look awful by spring, 
but after it's been outside awhile would put on new growth.  I guessing this 
from my experience with a similar item, Acalypha.  I have grown 
Alternantheras, too, but no overwintered them.
