Plumbago zeylanica is an allied species and is considered to be a cultivated variety of Plumbago rosea. It grows to a height of 36-48in with a width of 30in in some cases. Plumbago has white flowers that are prolific during the warmer months of the year. White Plumbago requires full sun and is frost tender. It makes a wonderful pot plant or patio plant in areas where frost occurs and the plant needs to be protected.

Zone 8-11; Water Requirements: Medium to Low.

Root contains an acrid crystalline principle called 'Plumbagin.' Root is said to increase the digestive power and promote appetite. Plumbagin stimulates the central nervous system in small doses, while with larger doses paralysis sets in leading ultimately to death. The blood pressure shows a slight fall.
