Pot Size: 3 litre
Description: 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 close to Megma on the Singalila Ridge, West Bengal in 2002. Where they formed shrubs to 1m tall with strongly arching slender rounded stems of ovate-lanceolate serrulate opposite leaves, appearing evergreen, but deciduous in all but the very mildest climate. 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.
