Design Ideas: This exotic purple-flowering shrub appears to be right out of equatorial jungles. Fast growing in frost-free zones, it reaches shrub-like proportions and may be planted as a single specimen or focal point. Excellent in protected side yards, where it can grow tall enough to screen neighboring views. Best in tropical gardens or as a background plant in cottage perennial landscapes. Prefers sheltered locations in courtyards, walled or fenced entry gardens, or planters in the niches of architecture. Particularly lovely when planted against light-colored stucco walls for contrast.

Provide organically rich, well-drained soil. Protect from intense heat and harsh sun exposures in very hot summer regions; keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with an acid fertilizer after bloom.
