Plumbago auriculata 'Alba', Cape Plumbago, Cape Leadwort

Click to see full-size image Plumbago auriculata 'Alba'
Family: Plumbaginaceae
Cape Plumbago, Cape Leadwort
Origin: S Africa, Himalayas, China.
Large shrub 5-10 ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSeaside, salt tolerant plant

Blooms throughout the year with denser blooms from March to November. Plumbago is popular in both tropical and sub-tropical gardens because of its delicate flowers. It is by nature a woody climbing shrub - with support it can reach several ft in height - but in the tropics it is seen more often as a low plant used for hedges. It tolerates both drought and poor soil and does best at slightly higher altitudes; heavy rainfall tends to beat down the flowers and leaves. Plumbago does best in full sun and grows best if it is heavily pruned from time to time, even cut back to the ground. Propagation is from green cuttings or by division of older plants.

A pretty subscandent perennial shrub with semi-woody striate stems and flexible branches; leaves simple, alternate, oblong, short-cuneate at the base passing into a very short amplexicaul, exauriculate, reddish periole; flowers bright red, in long terminal spikes. Root contains Plumbagin, sitosteraol glocoside. It is used gastric stimulant and appetizer; in large doses it is acro-narcotic poison. Locally it is vasicant. It has a specific action on the uterus. 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. Plumbagin is a powerful irritant and has well marked antiseptic properties. In small doses, the drug is a sudorific; large doses cause death from respiratory failure. It is suggested that the action is probably due to the direct effect of the drug on the muscles. A liniment made from bruised root mixed with a little bland oil is used as a rubefacient in rheumatism, paralytic affections, in enlarged glands, buboes etc. Caution: Do not use when pregnant; use only in small doses. It can cause abortion. Taken in large doses, this herb can cause paralysis leading ultimately to death.

Wild Plumbago
Origin: Central to South America
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterDry conditionsWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

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.
