A. pendula has now been re-classified (re-named) to A. reptans. another fun factoid for non-tropical zones, this plant will come back from the roots after a hard freeze. Plant Delights nursery in N. Carolina grows them in ground and so do i. it is actually a little too hardy for me! it sends underground runners all over my garden in good soil.
still, i love it.

Acalypha chamaedrifolia (Lam.) Müll. Arg.
(=) Acalypha hispaniolae Urb.
(≡) Acalypha reptans Sw.
(≡) Croton chamaedrifolius Lam.

Actually, I believe the correct name is now Acalypha chamaedrifolia (GRIN website,
APG III System of Taxonomy).
