Brilliantasia subulugurica is a fairly hardy, semi-deciduous, vigorous, fast growing shrub with large, glossy, attractive leaves.
It has spikes of big, beautiful, mauve, salvia-like flowers in late summer.
It needs sun for part of the day and should be well watered to flower best. Prune back at the beginning of spring.
With its striking flowers it is a lovely background plant for a shady area. Attracts insects to the garden.
