Blue Plumbago


SKU: 680101 Category:


A superb summer patio plant, adding a tropical flavour to your garden or patio – their clear sky-blue flower clusters smother this informal, scrambling shrub, which works well in large pots with cane supports.
Grow outside all summer, it will need winter protection, as can be damaged below 2°C, but will regrow away from the base the following year when it warms up again. In warmer parts of the country, especially in sheltered towns, plumbago will grow as an herbaceous perennial, dying down to ground level before reshooting in late spring.
Also known by its common name of Cape Leadwort, Plumbago is named from the Latin word plumbum, meaning lead, as it was believed to be a cure for lead poisoning. The clusters of phlox-like flowers are subtly scented and will attract butterflies and hoverflies into your garden, making them a great plant for wildlife. A great colour addition for summer long colour, and unusual too as it is seldom offered for sale.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant, approx. 70cm tall in a 1.5L pot, ready to pot on or plant out.
