A prolific herbaceous cum woody shrub. Not currently blooming but flowers are small tubular, colored white and lilac.
Growing as a hedge throughout this location: a semi-urban environment of houses, yards & gardens and patches of remnant forest. This is in the equatorial tropics of northern New Guinea.
Most promising species so far is Strobilanthes anisophylla. See http://www.newplantsandflowers.com/darke... and http://www.planthis.com.au/plant-informa... And Strobilanthes persicifolia, perhaps a synonym. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tony_rodd/3...
