Kopsia Fruticosa is a  small shade tree or tall bush. With shiny evergreen leaves, and leathery texture narrowly elliptical in shape; usually up to 9 inches long and 3.5 inches wide. Additionally, it tends to display bunches of star-pale pink stars (flowers) with a red throat or eye; resembling those of Madagascar periwinkle. Moreover, it is important to note that direct sun speeds flowering. Finally, fruits are pubescent, ellipsoidal, solitary, and up to 1 inch long.

Furthermore, Pink Kopsia prefers neutral soils and grows at a moderate rate but should be well-watered; and it is important to keep in mind that it does not respond well to pruning.

Besides it is hardy to 32* f and it propagated by softwood cuttings, with difficulty, and/or by air layering and seed. Often planted in groups for accent, suitable for coastal and seaside locations thanks to its high salt tolerance; also perfect for courtyards, and civic centers. And definitely an excellent specie for large planters and pots. Pink Kopsia adds a splash of color to any garden. Kopsia Fruticosa is grown in Asia for its medicinal properties. Its fruit should not be eaten and the sap avoided; kopsia is related to oleander which has poisonous bark.
