Jovellana violacea

This is a much neglected evergreen soft wooded shrub from South America that could find a place in any moist semi-shaded spot in your garden.

It grows to about 1metre tall and will in time make a small suckering clump. It produces its mauve, purple spotted and yellow tongued flowers in clusters during the early summer and these sit above the tiny serrated leaves. Prune out older stems every so often after flowering and all will be well.
