Sometimes referred to as Summer Poinsettia, this garden standout features brilliant variegated foliage. The upper "flower" foliage is splashed with shades of scarlet and yellow with green highlights - atop the base of yellow, green and chocolate-brown. Column-shaped plant growing to 36-48" high and 12-18" wide. Versatile annual, thrives in damp soils for waterside plantings, as well as also being very drought tolerant. Blooms from mid summer to fall in full sun. No two plants have exactly the same color patterning, so multiple plants are very attractive in the back of the border, bedding or among shrubs. Reseeds if allowed to.
