This graceful shrub grows up to 7 ft and has pointed narrow leaves 4 to 9 inches long. The white fragrant flowers are held in loose panicles, which are more or less pendulous. Cascades of flowers appear around Thanksgiving. Keep it out of the wind, and avoid putting it where it will get late afternoon sun. Blooming in fall-spring. The genus Clerodendrum consists of over 450 species of trees or shrubs, sometimes climbing, native to the tropics, but mostly to the Eastern Hemisphere. The name is derived from the Greek kleros, chance, and dendron, a tree, and is supposed to be in reference to the variable medicinal qualities of certain plants belonging to this genus.
The actual flowers are tiny and inconspicuous, but they are borne in the center of three showy white 1in (2.5cm) long bracts that look like velvety propellers. The bracts gradually change through pink, lavender, and finally gray over the course of several weeks.
Fast growing shrub with astonishing fragrant velvet leaves. Tall stalks shoot out multiple lavender blue flowers. Both foliage and inflorescence makes an outstanding display. Attracts butterflies. Leaves have pleasant tobacco-like scent.
The popular name of this large erect shrub is inspired by the clusters of bright orange-yellow berries that follow the flowers, in such quantities that they often cause the slender branches to droop gracefully. The lavender-blue or white flowers appear in loose clusters, and both berries and blossoms are often seen on a plant. Flowers have a mild sweet vanilla-like smell. There is also a form with variegated leaves, as well as one with bright yellow leaves; these do not bloom so profusely and are usually grown primarily for their foliage. Duranta requires frequent pruning to make a bushy plant, especially when used as a hedge, and needs full sun to bloom well. Bringing the potted garden a unique burst of color and form, this amazing cultivar surpasses the standard lavender cultivar in brightness and intensity. Use as a basket plant, a mounding bush or train into a standard, this plant will give the color deep purple new meaning. As free flower as any Duranta it covers itself in dripping chains of bloom. Each petal in the flower is defined by a light lavender boarder and marked by a white eye. A stunning sun lover that will bring months of gorgeous color to any garden, sunroom or conservatory.
A vigorous twining climber with large, shiny, bright green leaves. In spring it produces beautiful fragrant white flowers in large terminal clusters with fragrance of carnations. The flowers are usually short lived but very abundant. Leaves are smooth, 6 to 12 inches long. The plant can spread over large areas. The fleshy fruit is whitish, egg-shaped and surprisingly large - about 2-3 inches long, resembling Noni fruit in shape. Each fruit bears a single seed. It is a hardy plant for tropical and sub-tropical areas but, due to its vigor, it is unsuited to small gardens. The plants will tolerate shade but flower better where sunlight is available for a large part of the day. The species is adaptable to a range of soils but requires plenty of water.
Its unique flowers are the main interest of this scrambling shrub: each is a narrow, yellow tube backed by a broad, circular calyx, appearing in dense terminal clusters through summer and fall (autumn). The mid-green leaves are oval and slightly serrated. Its long, trailing canes make it ideal for espaliering. Rampant growth can be contained by pruning after flowering and old canes can be removed. There are also red- and bronze-flowered forms. Full sun but will bloom in filtered light. Sometimes this species is called Holmskioldia sanguinea Mandarin.

Very rare variety of Holmskioldia. Like it's sister "chinese hat" Holmskioldia sanguinea, it has showy flowers resembling a hat. Bright pink-and-blue color. Prefers moist soil and part shade.
It was an early introduction elsewhere in the tropical world, where it soon escaped the confines of gardens and became a weed. L. camara is a prickly shrub, about 3-6 ft in height, with ovate rough leaves and almost continuous displays of blooms that appear as clusters made up of tiny florets. Orange or red-orange are the commonest colors, but there are cultivars with larger white, pink, or lemon-yellow flowers. People like having Lantana in a garden because of the pungent smell of the leaves, and appreciate the reliable display of bright flowers. In Thailand, several colors are sometimes grafted onto a single trunk and the result trained into a standard. Lantana always prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Propagation is by air-layering or from woody cuttings.

Another variety L. sellowiana is also a trailing lantana with purple flowers, used as a ground cover.
