Clerodendrum inerme, Volkameria inermis, Wild Jasmine, Sorcerers Bush, Seaside clerodendrum, Clerodendron

Clerodendrum inerme, Volkameria inermis

Wild Jasmine, Sorcerers Bush, Seaside clerodendrum, Clerodendron
Family: Lamiaceae    (Formerly:Verbenaceae)
Origin: India, Malaysia
Can be used for bonsaiLarge shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersFragrantSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short timeFlood tolerantSeaside, salt tolerant plant

This shrub ranges from tropical Asia to western Polynesia (Niue) and is found on most of the high sand islands of this region. C. inerme is an evergreen mangrove plant, which has found a place in our gardens, is able to thrive near the ocean at the high tide mark, making it a potential weed in the coastal environment. A hardy, straggling shrub, it reaches a height of 9-12 FT with closely arranged, almost round, shiny, deep green leaves. The plant is always in flower. The flowers are white and very fragrant, with spreading five corolla lobes, 1" long white tubes and long purple stamens. As the specific name implies, the stems are smooth and are devoid of thorns. The plant is not choosy about the soil and can even withstand droughts. Seaside clerodendrum, as its name suggests, grows well along the beach tolerating the salt spray of the ocean and the harsh rays of the sun. It is a versatile plant and can be grown as a topiary or as a bonsai. It is its hardy nature and the closely held bunches and leaves that promoted it into a garden plant. Clerodendrum inerme is a sun loving plant and a sunny spot should be chosen for it. The plant produces suckers and seeds. For making hedges, a large number of well-developed plants are required and, therefore, it is advisable to produce new plants through cuttings. Trimming the plant keeps the hedges in shape and also promotes production of new branches and leaves to fill up the gaps. As flowers are produced at the ends of branches, trimming robs the plant of its flowers. The plants is salt-, heat- and wind-tolerant.

Clerodendrum mastacanthum, Rotheca mastacantha, Rotheca mastacanthus, Rotheca macrodonta

Pink Butterfly Bush
Family: Lamiaceae    (Formerly:Verbenaceae)
Origin: Africa
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterPink flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

A new plant in cultivation originated from South Africa. It is very similar to more common species Clerodendrum ugandense (Blue Butterfly Bush) other than color and smaller size of the flowers which are in tighter panicles.

It grows into a vigorous large size bush with multiple stems. Unlike most clerodendrums, it is very difficult to propagate and cuttings don't root very easily. Small plants grow very slowly but even at 1 ft tall they start flowering. Once etablished, the bush grows fast, producing many branches.

Cultivation is pretty simple and the plant needs only average maintenance - regular water and well drained soil. It needs full sun for flowering. Pink Butterfly Bush is more cold sensitive than Blue Butterfly Bush (C. ugandense). However even after a cold snap and leaf damage, plants regrow well from the main stems.

Originally we have obtained this plant in 2014 from a rare plant collector, and have been propagating it since. It came to us under name of Rotheca mastacantha. The name Rotheca is often used for plants in Clerodendrum genus.

Clerodendrum paniculatum, Pagoda Flower, Orange Tower Flower, Clerodendron

Clerodendrum paniculatum

Pagoda Flower, Orange Tower Flower, Clerodendron
Family: Lamiaceae    (Formerly:Verbenaceae)
Origin: India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia
Large shrub 5-10 ftFull sunSemi-shadeRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

This is an erect, open semiwoody shrub with large evergreen leaves and huge showy clusters of orange-red or scarlet flowers held above the foliage. The bush sometimes has multiple stems and gets 3-5 ft tall, spreading 2-3 ft across. The handsome, tropical looking leaves can be as large as 12 in across, they have heart shaped bases; lower leaves are lobed and upper leaves entire. They are arranged in opposite pairs along the fast growing stems which often branch from the roots rather than from a single trunk. The flowers are funnel shaped with long tubes. The flowers within the pyramid shaped cluster are tiered, like a Japanese pagoda. The showy display lasts from summer through autumn with additional sporadic flowering throughout the year in frost free climates. Pagoda flower is a fast growing shrub. It does best in a rich, slightly moisture retentive soil. Hardiness: USDA Zones 8 - 11, a returning perennial in zones 8B and 9. It can be expected to sprout back in spring after dying to the ground in winter. The plant is often grown in a mixed border or as a specimen along a wall, even under an overhanging roof.

Clerodendrum paniculatum Alba - Yellow Pagoda Flower

Pagoda Flower. Rare variety with off-white to yellow flowers. This rare variety with off-white to yellow flowers is one of the most impressive flowers of Florida winter season. We have this plant growing in our frond yard under the oak, in shade, and it keeps blooming all winter long! This variety seem to be hardier and more vigorous than regular red variety. It is also very drought tolerant, we never water it! The plant produces lots of root suckers so it spreads with time, but this is the great feature for the location: it covered an ugly wall, and its lush large leaves are such a tropical addition to the landscape. Highly recommended for shaded locations that can use both color and green.
