Plants from the tropics always have an appealing aspect. It could be their shape, their flowers, their colours. That is exactly what makes the Medinilla different. In its original habitat – South Asia, especially the Philippines - Medinilla stands out because of something else: the plant grows on the branches of trees, as an ‘epiphyte’. Under the leaves, Medinilla is protected from the often unfriendly, burning tropical sun.
In nature, the plant can reach 3 meters high. And the flowers are particularly striking. While other plants are proudly displaying their inflorescences, those of Medinilla hang. The flower cluster of Medinilla is particularly special: it’s the only variety whose vulnerable clusters are protected by bracts. Continuous breeding has made the enthusiastically growing Medinilla a stunning houseplant, which blooms for a long time in European living rooms: up to three months long.
Available in two types of packaging
Laguna supplies Medinilla in two types of packaging: one for the retail and one that is more suitable for selling in garden centres.
