Syncolostemon latidens is a perennial shrub that can grow up to 1.5m in height. The leaves are ovate and about 30-50x200-35mm. The mauve to dark pink flowers are borne in profusion between January and March, are scented and are borne on a dense raceme of about 200mm long. The flowers attract bees, butterflies and other pollinating insects such as flies.
Syncolostemon latidens is ideal for a mixed border or mixed shrubbery. It is also beautiful when planted in masses in the garden.
