Family: Rubiaceae
Mussaenda Queen Sirikit, Peach Mussaenda
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

This mussaenda is a named cultivar, "Queen Sirikit" the current Queen of Thailand. It was named to commemorate her first visit to the Philipines in the 1970's. The only mussaenda ever to be given a name of a person not of Filipino extraction. Mussaenda is a tropical shrub or sub-shrub that will grow to 10ft tall in tropical areas, but more likely will reach 1-3ft tall in containers. Clusters (corymbs) of small, tubular flowers with five spreading lobes bloom in summer, however it is the large and colorful, ovate, leaf-like sepals (to 3" long) that provide the real ornamental display. Some individual flowers in each cluster will develop a single enlarged sepal. Elliptic to ovate, bright green leaves (to 6" long). Hybrids typically feature flowers in red and/or yellow with showy sepals of white, bright red or pink.
