Barleria cristata

Philippine Violet

Called "Phillipine Violet" but neither Phillipine nor a Violet. Showy blue flowers in late summer and autumn. Perennial in zone 8-9, 4-6 foot shrub in zone 10. In zone 8 cut back plants afterfrost kills the tops. Mound 10 inches of coarse sand over the stubs. Mulch over with pine straw. As weather warms, remove this covering to allow new shoots to emerge. Given rich soil and ample water, these make a great addition to the subtropical garden. Native to India and Myanmar (Burma).
