Stock Number: 54528
Availability: In Stock
Family: Melastomataceae
Cultural Code: TGH what's this?

Collected from the hillside of Roberto Burle Marx's nursery, the woody "Rio Pincess Tree" produces pairs of large dramatic deeply veined furred leaves & terminal clusters of rich purple blossoms with white centers fading to rose. Demands plenty of space, bright light, and air movement--but can survive more neglect than we thought possible. This is a large statured specimen. This has presence.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
