Hi - I'd love to grow Alternanthera Ficoidea Red Threads (common name Joseph's Coat) but I can only find info about it online for the US.  Does anyone know where it might be available here, either as plant or seed?  Maybe it just won't grow here...

    Hello Tanty2. I think you are correct in your thinking that it won't grow here but on the other hand we could say that about half of the entries in our bedding plant directories. Have you tried asking the RHS?

  • Tanty2 what a beautiful plant, if you do manage to find it in the UK please let us know. I would like to find an Encore Azalea in purple or lilac, so far the only one available in the UK is an orangey/coral colour.
