A few of the other plants in this photo gallery may be tri-colored, while Joseph's coat plant is merely bi-colored....
Picture of Joseph's coat (Alternanthera).
But what Joseph's coat plant lacks in terms of quantity of colors, this tropical plant
more than makes up for in terms of quality
of color. This is one vibrantly colored specimen! Although Joseph's coat plant may be a perennial in tropical climes, it is treated as an annual
in the North, where its color explosion can be used to punch up window boxes and the like during the summertime.
