(Apocynaceae) origin: Brazil

The woody stems produce oval green leaves about 3 in. long by 1 in. wide, and a profusion of showy, deep pink trumpet flowers in spring and summer. A delicate variety requiring a light position away from direct sunlight, together with warmth (60° F. or 16° C.) and humidity. The leaves will fall if the atmosphere is hot and dry. A draught-free position is essential. Rapidly succumbs to over-watering or dryness. A greenhouse or conservatory plant.
