Purple heart is a trailing plant with attractive purple leaves.  Great in hanging baskets or as a ground cover in frost free areas.  Also makes a colourful house plant.

When growing indoors, place the container in full sun or partial shade. Bright sunlight brings out the intense purple of the leaves.

Fertilise the plant monthly, using a general-purpose liquid fertilizer for indoor plants. Apply the fertiliser to damp soil at the rate recommended on the label. Applying fertiliser to dry soil may burn the roots. Withhold fertiliser during the winter months.

Pinch the growing tips of the plant to create a bushy, compact plant. Repeat as needed to maintain the desired size and shape.

Pot Diameter: 130 mm hanging basket
