Barleria obtusa 'Purple Gem' is commonly known as "Purple Gem". It is an evergreen shrub with purple, cream and green coloured foliage. Dainty bright mauve-pink flowers cover the shrub through Spring and Summer. In tropical and sub-tropical areas they also flower sparsely throughout the year. Responding well to light pruning, Barleria obtusa 'Purple Gem' may be used as a small hedge or as a formal border for framing larger growing species. It is also suitable for pots/tubs, rockeries and mass plantings.
