nice plant

These are one of my favorites. They come small but with plenty of sun they will grow into a beautiful plant with lots of color.

Brazilian red hot Alternanthera

I love the not-so-common plants GrowJoy offers. My 5 plants arrived in excellent condition and are thriving in my garden. I can’t wait until Spring to see some growth and beautiful foliage!

Ouch, did not arrive looking well

All of the other plants I ordered arrived healthy and in great condition, this was the exception. It was barely alive and so so tiny...and it's still barely alive and struggling. Really disappointed in such an unhealthy baby plant.

Love this Plant

I ALWAYS have Alternanthera in my pots, it’s just a wonderful plant with great color. The Brazilian Red Hot is tricky to find but I know it is always on GrowJoy. Great plants!
