Plant Bio

Native to the Philippines, this showy plant has become popular all over the world for its beautifully unique shape and colour. In fact, it’s such an extravagent plant that it was a favourite amongst royals in the 1900s, who would grow it in conservatories to show off their wealth and status.

The medinilla is commonly known as the ‘rose grape’ because of its flower buds which collect in clusters. But be careful, this is a toxic plant and definitely shouldn’t be snacked upon!
