Leea guineensis is an evergreen shrub or small tree native to tropical Africa. Leea's are vigorous growers and need quite a lot of space.The light green new growth is quite a contrast to the dark green foliage.

In the greenhouse Leea's will bloom all year long. Flowers are in much-branched cymes and are up to 8 inches across.

Leea guineensis need partial shade with intermediate to warm temperatures. The plant cannot withstand much drought and should be kept moist at all times.

Leea guineensis is propagated by stem cutting or by seed.
