Mussaenda is a flowering bush native to India and Southeast Asia. In the garden it can be kept as a bush or made into a small tree. It flowers constantly through the year, without needing any special care. The flowers are tiny, but the brightly coloured bracts are much bigger and profuse.

The hanging bracts of the pink mussaenda remind me of a butcher's shop. I always refuse my friends' offer of cuttings of this plant.
