Family: Lamiaceae   (Formerly:Verbenaceae)
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This elegant plant is a rare species in plant collections.

Winter bloomer, puts on a spectacular display with cascading white flowers that dance against its deep green foliage. Flowering racemes hang down a foot and a half or more. It often has two flowering periods during the winter season.

The white fragrant flowers are held in loose pendulous panicles, similar to Bridal Veil (Clerodendrum wallichii). The white flowers on long dark red flower stalks are very showy against dark green foliage.

The differences between the two species however are very distinctive. C. schmidtii has dark red flower stalks and they are much longer, while C. wallichii stems are shorter and all green. The overall look of C. schmidtii is more "fragile" and lace-like. Leaves of C. wallichii are more narrow than C. schmidtii. As far as flower shape, they look a lot alike, however C. schmidtii has fewer stamens. C. wallichii looks greener and healthier in filtered light, and C. schmidtii looks best in full sun conditions.

An unusual color variation of the more familiar Bleeding Heart vine, 'Delectum' has a red flower with a lavender bract behind it. This is one of the few vines that will bloom well in the shade. Use it on arbors, trellises, or in the landscape, where it can run up a fence or a tree. Site your plant carefully in a sheltered location. In climates where winters are harsh, Clerodendrums may be grown in a greenhouse in containers filled with two-thirds fibrous loam, and one-third leaf mold and peat. Sand, wood ash and a bit of bone meal should be added. The climbing kinds do better when planted in a bed of soil rather than in pots or tubs. They should be trained to pillars and rafters to show off their full beauty. They need an annual top-dressing of fresh compost. If they are grown in large pots or tubs, they may be trained around stakes or wires fashioned into the shape of a balloon. During the spring or summer, you should sprits the plants on sunny days. This encourages fresh growth and keeps them free from pests. It's usually necessary to spray with an insecticide every ten days or so during the growing season. When they are grown in a greenhouse, they will benefit from large amounts of liquid fertilizer from April to August. Those grown in a greenhouse also need a resting season during the winter by reducing the water considerably and by lowering the temperature and humidity. Pruning consists of removing the dead twigs on old bushes in the summer. When grown outdoors, there are usually dead ends of branches to cut off following a severe winter.

They are scarlet (sometimes white), about 1 in (2.5 cm) across and borne in dense terminal clusters to 5 in (12.7 cm) inches long. The fruit is unknown. Prefers full sun, but does best with some shade during the hottest part of the day in summer. Water frequently in summer, sparingly in winter. Hardiness: USDA Zones 10 - 11, does not tolerate frost. Requires a sturdy support like pergola. This evergreen climber is popular in warm, humid climates and can be used as an evergreen screen on a trellis or wall.
