Pseuderanthemum is a genus of about 60 species of herbs and shrubs native to the tropical regions of the world. The name is from the Greek pseudo, false, and Eranthemum, the genus in which these plants were formerly placed. So, they are commonly called false eranthemums. The variety Yellow-Vein Eranthemum is an evergreen shrub notable for its unusual green-veined creamy yellow foliage. It has small white flowers with purple-pink dotty spots at the base.
Golden Pseuderanthemum simply adores the sun. From afar, we saw smiling and sunny faces, reverberating in the sunlight that was showering them. The variegated leaves shone vibrantly in varying shades of yellow, chartreuse and green.
Yellow-vein Eranthemum looked even more attractive live when basked in the bright sunshine. And, there and then, we decided to get these flowering shrubs to grace our front yard garden! They’d make great screen or hedges along our chain-link fence where there’s ample sunlight to cheer them.
