Centradenia sp.

Spanish Shawl
Family: Melastomataceae
Origin: Guatemala
Small plant 2-5 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterPink flowersBlue, lavender, purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsUnknown name

Centradenia sp., a small shrub native to Guatemala, is a delightful choice for any garden. Featuring heavily fragrant purple, blue and lavender flowers, it provides a continuous show of color in the garden. This shrub grows 2-5 feet tall in full sun or partial shade and requires regular water and moderate humidity.

Centradenia sp. is an ideal choice if you're lucky enough to live in an area that falls within USDA zone 9-11. Elsewhere, it can be grown outdoors in the summer in a container, placed in a sunny area and brought indoors in the fall. In very cold climates, to help ensure that it comes up year after year, it should be dug up, taken inside and overwintered in a cool, but frost-free location.

This evergreen shrub is an excellent choice for attracting butterflies and hummingbirds and is sure to bring smiles to gardeners. Said to be deer and pest resistant, Centradenia sp. provides an easy care, vibrant garden display all season long.
