Medinilla sedifolia

This unusual Melastome hails from Madagascar and has leaves that stay around 1/3 inch.  It does well in a hanging basket or mounted, but also does well as a foreground plant provided the substrate is well-drained.  For me, it has been a slow-growing but hardy species.  The flowers are magenta-purple with white pistils and are large in comparison to the foliage.
