Item added to cart!

Red Threads Joseph's Coat is an erect evergreen perennial grown for its foliage that doesn’t wander.  Its slender leaves form a textured carpet in shades of deep burgundy. The inconspicuous pale flower buttons are held in the leaf axils that are nearly indistinguishable from the foliage.  Best color in full sun and rich, consistently moist well-drained soils in cooler regions; warmer regions do best with afternoon shade to prevent color bleaching.
