Chinese Plumbago, My Love Plumbago
This entry has yet to be reviewed and approved by L2G editors.
Chinese plumbago is a small twiggy shrub with an open habit and diamond-shaped apple green leaves. Valued for late season interest, it bears clusters of true blue flowers in late summer. Autumn brings a beautiful show of color with red to bronze foliage.
Tolerant of drought and poor soils, Chinese plumbago is a good candidate for banks and slopes. Small enough for the patio or container, this Chinese native looks best when grown in sun and lightly shaped before growth begins in the spring. It is an open-shaped simple shrub for the mixed perennial border to companion asters, early mums, reblooming roses and wispy ornamental grasses.
