Product Information
Plumbago auriculata is also known as "Men's Loyalty. This plant is ideally suited for use in a tub, but full soil is also fine if protected from moderate frost. Plumbago is a climbing plant that blooms for a very long time. The plant produces an overwhelming mass of flowers in various shades of blue that develop at the end of their elegantly curved stems. The plant blooms from late May to September. Plumbago is a great plant for terrace and patio and can also provide a beautiful impact in a rock garden or in borders, for example. Plumbago is a deciduous plant and needs a little help climbing. In a pot it can grow up to 150cm tall, in the open ground it can reach 3 meters, provided there is no severe frost. If desired, the plant can be pruned back considerably from October onwards.

The Plumbago can stand in full sun but also does well in half shade. Furthermore the plant likes water. The leaf of the Plumbago is very light green. As soon as it turns yellowish, it means that the plant needs some extra water and/or nutrition. Furthermore, the Plumbago is not very hardy. As soon as there is a chance of frost, it is best to put the plant inside. It can endure up to 8 to 10 degrees of frost (-10 degrees). Starting in October, the plant may be pruned back considerably.
