Ruspolia 'Twilight'

I first chanced upon this beautiful flowering shrub planted along the drive-way of NPark's headquarters at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It has beautiful lavender coloured fowers which grow in small bunches. Unfortunately, it is unscented. When I saw a lonely specimen planted in a bag for sale at Ji Mei, I grabbed it without any haste. It remains potted in the bag today but continues to flower profusely. This is an evergreen shrub which can grow up to 3ft tall. It requires regular moisture, full to part sun and thrives well in fertile, well-drained soil.
