Medinilla myriantha Pixie
Medinilla myriantha Pixie is a beautiful small growing compact tropical evergreen flowering plant. One of the smallest and most compact forms of Medinilla we have. Making small plants 30-50cm tall by the same wide. They produce beautiful and very showy pink flowers and berries that are pendulous and hang beautifully down from the foliage. Their flowers bright pink, sometimes with a light or white edge to the petal depending on weather conditions. They flower for many months, often 3-6 months for us in the nursery. And when pollinated are followed by hot pink berries which eventually turn bright purple many months later. They provide year round colour between the flowers and berries. And have beautiful large glossy leathery leaves which add to their appeal. They are tropical plants. But do well at our nurseries in Kenthurst and Cranebrook through our cold winters as long as they are protected from frosts. They make fantastic pot specimens out on the patio, in the garden or in a hanging basket. And make wonderful indoor plants in bright airy rooms near a window.
We have beautiful specimens available in two sizes in 180mm pots and 200mm hanging baskets. They are currently producing flower buds.
