Joseph's Coat, or Alternanthera, blooms in tropical regions in autumn. Because Baishi liked to paint red-colored flowers, Joseph's Coat appears often in his paintings and prints. In Chinese, the plant is known as yanlaihong, which means "red until the wild geese fly" in late autumn. The deep red color also symbolizes agelessness.
