Comes in a pot of 26cm diameter. Growth Form: Herbaceous shrub with erect growth habit. Stem: Young herbaceous stem is red. Foliage: Opposite leaves are elliptic with entire or wavy leaf margin (15 cm long). Leaves are mostly green with mixed patches of peach, cream and pink along the midvein. Hairless, glossy leaves have an uneven leaf texture. Flowers: Reddish purple or pinkish purple flowers are tubular and located near the stem tips in clusters (4 cm long, 1 cm wide). Landscaping: This cultivar is grown for its ornamental, colourful foliage which create a tropical look. It is suitable for planting in large containers and would grow well on a sunny patio. The uneven, wrinkled leaves will provide texture to landscapes when placed in mass plantings. It can be pruned into a hedge or screen. Cultivation: This fast-growing species is easy to grow and ideal for hot, humid climates. Leaves will be most colourful when plants are grown under full sun, but plants can tolerate partial shade. Specimens should ideally be planted 1.2 - 1.8 m apart in fertile, well-drained soil that is kept moist. However, this cultivar is tolerant of waterlogged soils and would be suitable for poorly drained areas. Apply a complete, balanced fertilizer once a month for outdoor plants and twice a month for potted plants. This cultivar should be pruned to maintain a compact shape. It is usually resistant to most pests and diseases, but may be attacked by mealy bugs and aphids. https://florafaunaweb.nparks.gov.sg/special-pages/plant-detail.aspx?id=4231
