Pot Size: 15 litre
Description: Only forming shrubs to 1.5m tall with strongly arching slender rounded stems of lanceolate serrulate opposite leaves, appearing evergreen, but deciduous in all but the very mildest climate. A charming very variable species described as being capable of forming a small tree (after a lifetime) more often seen as a small to medium size shrub as we encountered with this collection gathered from a deep side valley from Lachung in northern Sikkim in 2002. With the shortly winged pink seed capsules hanging on long slender branched stalks from their axils, resulting from the reddish-purple flat four-petalled flowers held in luxurious quantities May to July. Easily grown in sun or part to full shade in a moisture retentive drained fertile soil.
