If you want a clutter-breaking plant that gives you the benefits of greenery while still bringing some variety amidst your greens, the False Purple Eranthemum is a perfect choice. With its purple foliage, in blends of white or pink, the plant is a gorgeous take away for all kinds of home settings. The dark-green, shiny, oval leaves are brightly coloured with red veins, and the undersides are purple. Also very often seen is the variegated form, P. a. variegatum, which has waxy-looking leaves in hues of pale grey-green, rose-pink and white. The spotted, tubular-shaped white, pink or purple flowers are borne on short, terminal spikes and bloom for most of the year.
