Showy Asian Grapes

Medinilla speciosa

Description:

Thx for the lead Ceherzog and GeoLeo42....did a little bit of research and I believe this species is called as such. Reason is I found this one growing around Mt. Kinabalu highland and that its a native species to borneo...and the rounded fruits are at first pink and purple-blue when ripe (hence to common name of Showy Asian Grapes).

Habitat:

This species is typical of the mountain forests and prefers shaded areas and moist soils, at elevations between 300 metres (980 ft) and 750 metres (2,460 ft) above sea level
