Plumbago (Plumbago capensis)


Plumbago is a rambling shrub with beautiful clusters of sky blue flowers. They can bloom spring through fall with the best show of color in fall. Needing well drained soil and plenty of fertilizer they can be scruffy looking in mid summer and winter. Best used as a background accent so when they are blooming the color jumps and when scruffy attract no attention.

They can be grown as an espalier or rounded as a shrub, but their best show of color comes when allowed to ramble only trimming in early spring and fall to control size and density.
