Planting & Care
All is not what it seems with a Mussaenda flower. Take a look at a ‘flower’ and what will first strike you are the large showy ‘petals’ which are in fact enlarged floral sepals. These surround the yellow, cream or white flowers. The starry true flowers are 5 petaled and have a crepe like texture.

Sunlight: Full sun to part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: medium

Temprature: 50

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Mussaendas are generally pest free, particularly if their nutritional and climatic needs are met.
  • They can be subject to scale, mealy bug.
  • In turn this can lead to sooty mould growing on honey dew.
  • This seems to be worse when plants grown up against a house where the warm, dry conditions encourage these pests.

 


Special Feature:
Shrub in tropical climates. Container plant in St. Louis.
