Rubiaceae Week :: Mussaenda erythrophylla – Mussaenda – bangalore – RA:  The mussaenda is an evergreen shrub related to coffee trees and native to Asia.

It may be a rather small shrub, or large to 30 feet, like a small tree.
Commercial nurseries often train mussaenda to be tree-like in form for landscape use. Their natural habit is to produce many stems and it is quite a rambler.

It has silky, hairy, soft medium-green leaves. The plant’s color comes from bracts and not the small, often yellow, white or orange, flowers at the center of each bract. This is the same color-producing system used by tropicals such heliconia and bougainvillea. Bracts may be seen in several colors including rose, white, red, pale pink and some mixtures.

Rubiaceae Week: Musseanda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’ from Khalsa College, Delhi.: Musseanda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’ from Khalsa College, Delhi.

Shrubs often growing 5 m or more tall, with elliptic-ovate leaves up to 15 cm long, slightly hairy beneath; flowers sulphur yellow with 15-22 mm long tube, with rounded ovate enlarged sepal up to 7 cm long, nearly as broad.
This particular cultivar has enlarged sepals and bracts are pink coloured in this cultivar.

There is confusion on whether this particular cultivar belongs to M. philippica or M. erythrophylla, and sometimes simply listed as Mussaenda ‘Queen Sirikit’. However, the two species are quite distinct in corolla, it being yellow in M. philippica and white to creamy white with red centre in M. erythrophylla. The following key should help in separating cultivated members of Rubuaceae.
Perhaps more than flower colour which can vary the more important difference is
M. philippica: all flowers in the inflorescence with enlarged calyx lobes
M. erythrophylla: only few flowers in inflorescence with enlarged calyx lobes

Mussaenda Species : Mumbai : 04MAY21 : AK-01: 1 image.
Mussaenda Species seen in a garden in Mumbai.

I am getting confused between M philippica and M erythrophylla, since search is showing both for pink flowers.
A cultivated, garden plant.


The two species are quite distinct in corolla, it being yellow in M. philippica and white to creamy white with red centre in M. erythrophylla

Your plant appears to be Mussaenda philippica, as per images and details herein.


Most likely to be Musseanda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’


Mussaenda philippica ‘Queen Sirikit’ seems to have lighter pink sepals with a dark edge.
Kindly check.


Colour can change on camera settings.


Id will not change on different hues of pink.


Ok.
