Plumbago (Plumbago auriculata) Plant Profile!

After a long break, we are happy to continue our individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Plumbago (Plumbago auriculata).

 

From the entry:

“We try to use Plumbago in part shade situations because the plant is not as drought tolerant in full sun and seems to enjoy the occasional shade. With that in mind, Texas adapted Plumbago is a stellar pick for many landscapes. Its blue flowers will really pop out in the summer and will complement well other similar colored plantings. An excellent bang for your buck perennial that will spread with time up to a six foot diameter space. Plumbago is deciduous so shearing back after first frost is recommended.”

 

What do you think about Plumbago? Do you grow it yourself? What kind of experience and insights you have to share? We love featuring our readers’ plant pictures and Xeriscapes!
