Alternanthera reineckii ver 'Cardinalis' - Telanthera Cardinalis' Alternanthera reineckii, AKA, FKA?! What's going on here?

Post  fishNAbowl on 2014-09-03, 21:36

Can anyone explain what's going on here? Is it the same plant ? A 'Ver'? Internet reading and pictures vague with no separation. I am going to keep searching the net. But does anyone here have info ?

Any insight appreciated!

Telananthera  cardinalis , is a common name and has no meaning, alternanthera reineckii is the scientific name. Common names create all sorts of confusion.  If it's a specific variation it would be described after reineckii, ie rosifolia, pink, green, dwarf...ect.  so it's safe to say you have alternanthera Reineckii, there are several other types of alternanthera so it's a possibility plants sold under a common name may be in the same family but a different type.
