Among the most exciting plants in the world are the Medinilla. With tropical foliage and stunning flowering clusters of pink abandon, the Medinilla is a show stopper, suitable for zone 10 outdoors, but surprisingly easy as a houseplant, anywhere. Semi-epiphytic in the wild (similar in nature to air plants such as orchids, staghorn ferns and bromeliads), the Medinilla will SHOCK you and your friends with dazzling bloom performance. Outdoors in shaded conditions with moist soil, your Medinilla will thrive growing lush tropical foliage and cluster after cluster of orchid-like pink blooms. After blooming baby pink, the flowers turn a deeper pink, then magenta and finally finish dark red like sweet ripe cherries. Indoors, bright light, but no direct sun except morning sun is the ticket to success. Provide indoor warmth, and you will enjoy blooming performance indoors starting approximately November with flowers lasting until fall when "berries" are at their peak. Older plants bloom several times a year. You can enjoy flower clusters and berries up to 12 months a year when your very Medinilla is happy. Outdoors, no frost is allowed, but cold weather to near freezing is tolerated. In pots, folks marvel at Medinilla in many climate zones with protection on hazardous nights from wind and cold (take inside). Medinilla performs extremely well in shaded areas, in pots, can even be used in hanging basket arrangements because the bloom clusters droop when in flower for that cascading look. Foliage is great as well; a rich, shiny green. See article about Medinilla.

Medinilla has bright pink flowers and can be grown as a small shrub or a potted plant. Very tropical-looking exotic plant.

Medinilla leaves are very fragile and may be slightly damaged during transportation which does not hurt the plant. Trim as needed and more new leaves will grow quickly.
