The sole matured plant with flowers and fruits were located at a park in the northern side of Singapore on 19 June 2021. It was likely to be the first sighting of this herbaceous plant locally and might be a new plant record in Singapore. There were seedlings around the parent plant. Given the right condition, the plant might be naturalized here soon.
