Acalypha 'Firestorm'   

An attractive ornamental bush around 1.5 to 2 metres high, with a similar spread.
It has graceful green foliage, tinged with deep red, and a cream margin. Inconspicuous flowers appear towards the tips of the foliage.

While pruning back the main plant I found a branch with a heal that was putting forth rudimentary roots. This has been potted up and placed in the propagation area for care and attention.
