Leptodermis oblonga is a western China native in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) that's been quite impressive and easy to grow in our trials. Leptodermis oblonga makes a 4' tall x 3' wide shrub-like mass of upright woody stems clothed in small, Salvia greggii-shaped leaves. For us, Leptodermis oblonga 'Baby Lilac' flowers continuously from mid-May through September with an abundance of clusters of butterfly-attracting, small, light lavender flowers...truly a show stopper.
