Mussaenda Queen

Mussaenda philippica 'Queen Sirikit'


The Philippines University created this beautiful Dona Queen Sirikit by crossbreeding Dona luz (or Dona Mag SaySay) and Dona Aurora (M. philippica var. aurorae) as a gift for Her Majesty Queen Sirikit of Thailand during Their Majesties' visit to the country in 1963. The Queen gave the new hybrid its name. Five light pink bracts with dark pink edges are at the base of a yellow flower. Common name: Rose Plume Botanical name: Cordyline terminalis Family name: Liliaceae This hybrid C. terminalis has a striking flower, aptly called “Rose Plume.” This plant flowers year-round except for a few winter months when the leaves drop off. It is located a few yards west of the Live Oak.
