Princess flower or glory bush, is a large, dense, rounded-but-sprawling, tropical shrub. Rose-purple flowers (to 3-4″ diameter) with purple stamens bloom singly or in clusters in summer. This shrub may be grown in containers which are typically sunk to the rim in garden areas or placed on patios or decks throughout the growing season. Plants are sensitive to frost, however, and containers should be brought indoors to a cool bright room for overwintering as houseplants before first fall frost.
Best grown in moist, acidic, organically rich, fertile, well-drained soils in full sun.
Downy green leaves.
