Copper plants are great foliage plants for the summer and fall landscape. When planted in the spring, these beautiful tropical-looking small shrubs turn into fabulous accent plants in color beds as we get later in the growing season.

One of the old, common copper plant varieties in Louisiana is called Louisiana Red. It has red foliage on a 5-foot-tall plant. Other varieties have bronze, green, yellow, bicolored and tricolored appearances. Heights vary from 2-6 feet at maturity in the fall.

Copper plants can be perennials in zone 9A and south and annuals in zone 8B and north. You can find many new varieties.
