Brazilian Red Cloak

Megaskepasma

Family: Acanthaceae


A fast-growing, soft-wooded shrub.

Primarily grown for the pinkish-red flower heads which are produced in late summer-autumn.

However, the pale green pleated leaves are also quite attractive and make a good contrast with other tropical foliage.

They can take part sun but look more lush in light shade.
