Crimson Medinilla

Originating in the Philippines, the Crimson Medinilla miniata, is a bright addition to landscapes in Hawaii. On the islands the medinilla are found mostly on the windward side, growing best in the tropical rain forest settings.

It is said that this plant doesn’t tolerate temperatures below 64 degrees. In that way, we feel that the plant is a good representation of island residents who don sweaters and hoodies in the morning or at elevations greater than a couple thousand feet.
