Joyweed, a plant with purple/maroon leaves and white round flowers/fruits.

It is very obvious that we have seen this plant. But, what’s it’s name? Can you guess? I have also guessed and searched for the name in the Google and very easily I got the name!

This plant is commonly called as Calico plant or Joyweed. Calico plant’s botanical name is Alternanthera dentata ‘Purple Knight’ and it belongs to Alternanthera genus.

ನಾವೆಲ್ಲರೂ ನೋಡಿರುವ ಈ ನೇರಳೆ ಎಳೆಯ, ದುಂಡನೆಯ ಬಿಳಿಹೂಗೊಂಚಲು/ಕಾಯಿ ಬಿಡುವ ಸಸ್ಯದ ಹೆಸರು Calico ಅಂತೆ! Alternanthera dentata ‘Purple Knight’ ಎಂಬ ಸಸ್ಯಶಾಸ್ತೀಯ ಹೆಸರು ಹೊಂದಿದ Genus: Alternanthera ಈ ಗಿಡಕ್ಕೆ ‘Joyweed’ ಎಂಬ ಹೆಸರೂ ಇದೆಯಂತೆ.
