There are several names in use for dark-leaved cultivars of Chrysothemis pulchella. These include C. pulchella Bronze Leaf and C. pulchella Copper Leaf, which appear to be used interchangeably. The specimen above was exhibited as Bronze, but we are using the Copper Leaf name for this page as it appears to pre-date others.
This beautiful specimen was exhibited at the GS2023 convention, and is a fine and imposing plant, beautifully grown.
