    Default Clerodendrum ugandense (Glory Bower or Blue Butterfly Bush) in Bloom.

    I posted photos of this plant last year and now include some more distant shots to give a better perspective on how many blooms this Glory Bower produces at one time. I also post these for those looking for a landscaping or decorative potted plant as not only are the flowers beautiful they are 'ever blooming'. This plant bloomed ten and a half months last year. It had a semi-dormant period for less than six weeks in late winter. Hope you enjoy this easy care beauty. ALName:  Clarendendrun Ugandanse (Glory Bower) 017.JPG

    Al, this is one of my most favorite Clerodendrums. I've grown it several times and I always end up losing it to root nematodes. It is a beauty. You've done a beautiful job growing it.

    Thanks Cathy. It was one of my first tropical plant purchases like six years ago and it's still a blooming favorite. AL

    Yes Peter you are so right. Glad you posted a good close up. My photo's as usual don't do the plant or blooms justice. AL
