The Rolls Royce of House Plants: Medinilla

by Onika Amell, tropical plant expert

...This is an extremely showy tropical plant with bunches of bright pink blooms that will flower for months on end. What a stunning and colorful plant! Showy should be its middle name. It is one of those plants that truly evokes feelings of elegance and drama...
Medinilla apoensis - Philippine Pink is particularly rare and hard to find in the trade. The flowers on this particular Medinilla is not hidden underneath so it is not necessary to grow it in a hanging basket like so many other species. It is a tall upright grower that will flower throughout the summer. For all you obsessed collectors out there, do not hesitate. This Medinilla is not in many US collections. The plants we have right now are at least 1-1.5 feet tall and are blooming size. Wink wink ;)
