Melastoma is a genus in the family Melastomataceae. It has about 50 species distributed around Southeast Asia, India, and Australia. It is undergoing taxonomic revision

Common name: Malabar Melastome, Indian-rhododendron
Color: Red
Bloom time: May to June
Height: 2.00 to 3.00 feet
Difficulty level: easy to grow

Planting & Care
Plants do not thrive in Zones 9 to 10 without a period of refrigeration; they need a cold, dormant period. Select a site with soil that drains well. How can you tell? After a good rain, find a spot that is the first to dry out. Water trapped beneath the scales may rot the bulb, so a well-drained site is essential.

Sunlight: Part shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 35oC

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:

  • Diligently water your plants.
  • Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather.
  • Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which won’t reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus.
  • Plants do best with 90 inches of rain per year, so unless you live in a rain forest, water regularly.

 


Special Feature:
Where winter hardy, grow in mass, in groups or as specimens in shrub borders, mixed borders, woodland gardens and shade gardens. In St. Louis, site this shrub in protected locations, including along walls and foundations that face south.
