This listing should be combined under purpurea-fusca, which is the proper name.

H. purpureo fusca is often sold as H. cinnamomifolia because the leaves are nearly identical...altho the flowers are very different. This one of mine grows outdoors and is up in the tops of the trees...zone 11 in Hawaii with tons of rain. Nearly always she is in the shade with bright indirect light.

Very handsome plant, reliable flowers, lovely scent, lovely leaves. Easy to grow here, hence 5*
