Family: Acanthaceae
Origin: India
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeSemi-shadeRegular waterBlue/lavender/purple flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This is a strongly branched shrub, popular with gardeners because of the spikes of flowers that are bright gentian blue - an unusual color in the tropics. The flowers appear from green-and-white veined bracts that remain after the blooms fall, forming a column several inches long. The hairy leaves are large and dark green. A sprawling shrub which may reach a metre or more in height, Eranthemum is usually kept lower and bushier through pruning. Light shade is preferred in a garden; in a greenhouse it needs warm conditions. It is easily propagated from cuttings.
