Sometimes called “Rose Grape”, “Philipinne Orchid”, “Pink Lantern plant” or “Chandelier tree”, Medinilla magnifica is a small evergreen shrub native to the Philippines where it is usually found growing on trees in tropical forests. However, Medinilla has been grown for hundreds of years as an exotic houseplant, once prized in Belgium by the wealthy and noble.

In late spring to early summer, the plant is covered by drooping clusters of delicate pink flowers that look somewhat like grapes or wisteria flowers. These flowers are what gives the plant all its folk names.
