Mosaic Plant (Ludwigia sedioides)
The 3" round clusters of small red and green leaves make this plant a favorite. The diamond shaped leaves grow from a central radius, forming a mosaic-like pattern. Mosaic plant is intolerant of alkaline water and will die if the pH is above 8. Will thrive in warm temperatures of 70 degrees and above, in a sunny to partly shaded location. This unusual and attractive plant will spread to cover 24 inches in a single season.
