Genus Pseuderanthemum comprised of about 60 species of evergreen perennials, subshrubs and shrubs from woodland habitats in tropical regions worldwide. Pseuderanthemum is grown for its brightly-coloured foliage, but its purple-eyed white flowers are attractive.
Pseuderanthemum reticulatum known as Yellow-Vein Eranthemum, Golden Net Bush, Golden Eldorado, or Golden Pseuderanthemum is notable for its unusual green-veined creamy yellow foliage. The variegated leaves shone vibrantly in varying shades of yellow, chartreuse and green. Large flower spikes at the ends of the branches hold several tubular white blossoms with cerise [pinkish red] markings in the centers.
Pseuderanthemum reticulatum is host plant of Autumn Leaf butterfly [Doleschallia bisaltide] but nectar plant for many other butterflies. Above is a Plain tiger [Danaus chrysippus chrysippus] butterfly.
