This is a very interesting small, subshrub with delicate pale yellow blooms. Golden star-shaped blooms are surrounded by creamy yellow bracts. The unusual flowers of dwarf Mussaenda feature large sepals in palest yellow-white and small yellow corollas. The leaf on the end of the stem is white to indicate that a future bloom will appear. This leaf then falls off. An ever-blooming, small, evergreen shrub excellent in containers. It blooms especially well during the warm months. It grows in sun or light shade and likes moist, well-drained soil. It responds well to pruning & is an excellent butterfly and hummingbird nectar plant! A native of Africa, cultivated and naturalized in India.
