Description: A relatively small species with broadly ovate rugose foliage, where we collected the seed of this perennial growing at the edge of dense jungle on the slopes of Gunung Kerinci the highest volcano (still active) on Sumatra in the autumn of 2005. With flexuous more or less upright red stems to 1m tall, bearing the bronzed young foliage ageing to grey, contrasting well with the bright pink long lasting flowers held in large clusters which age paler. Best grown in a retentive fertile soil in full sun or part shade, protect the roots from severe frost.
