Alternanthera reineckii, or dwarf redleaf, is an embarrassingly easy plant to grow in a pond or aquarium. Its bronze-red leaves do not require the same fussy attention of some of its cousins, and it offers nice foliar contrast to other plants with green leaves. Shallow water, or submerged, given enough water and sunshine, this plant doesn’t care where it is in the water table Ð it shines!
