#637 They called me Ardisia purpurea, also known as Ardisia leschenaultii, Ardisia hasseltii, and Ardisia sarasinii. I pay homage to the male botanists Leschenault (I couldn’t find his records), Johan Coenraad van Hasselt, and Sarasin (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1826.
