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.
