Clerodendrum ugandense


By Meanie

Clerodendrum ugandense (Clerodendrum ugandense (Blue glory bower))

After my Clerodendrum had taken a couple of frosts back in November and lost all its leaves I lost my nerve and bought it indoors. It immediately burst into bud and the first blooms are opening. It really is loaded and has over thirty flowering stems.

Thanks guys!

It'll look stunning in about a week - very few leaves (owing to the frosts) and scores of blue flowers!

PA - I bottled it! As long as it's frost free then it'll be fine. This took a couple of light frosts, but as the power supply to the top of the garden (g/house) is a little iffy I'm not taking any chances this year. I'll replace the supply next spring.
I know what you mean about t'other half!

It is one of my very favourite plants Amy.

I keep mine out all in the garden and one in a pot. No leaves on the one in the pot, the one in the garden is doing better. They come back up in the spring. At least they do here in Greece.

I'd love to Alex, but I don't trust the British winter.
