An extraordinary evergreen Euphorbia relative, this quick-to-establish Costa Rican vine generates alternate 5 in. long rough-finished heart-like leaves, which render a pleasant, yet rather unassuming light green backdrop. Twin 2 to 3 in. long broad serrated bracts with iridescent fuchsia purple shades and pronounced veins evoke an enormous butterfly, while encompassing small button-shaped lime-yellow flowers. Well-suited for container culture, Purple Wings asserts drama queen chic as magnificent Poinsettia-style blooms unfurl nearly year round; cool sun, moderate moisture, well-drained soil and protection from temperatures below 25° ensure its success. Large Band.
Blooms June – October.
Size: 15' 0" – 20' 0" high x 3' 0" wide.
