Medinilla magnifica, Rose Grape, Malaysian Orchid, Chandelier Tree
A native to the Philippines, blooming Medinillas are very pretty. Medinilla thrives in shaded conditions and moist soil, growing lush tropical foliage and cluster after cluster of orchid-like pink blooms. The buds are baby pink, the flowers turn to a deeper pink, then magenta and finally dark red like sweet ripe cherries.
No one wants flowers to blush unseen or waste their sweetness.
