More Information

Description Hardy plumbago (Ceratostigma plumbaginoides) brings a splash of color to your garden in the late summer through fall with creatively colored flowers and foliage. Striking blue flowers bloom in the late summer and persist as foliage changes from green to a rich maroon in the fall. These colors will quickly fill your garden as it spreads vigorously in optimum conditions. Hardy plumbago is a creeping, semi-woody perennial. This tough-as-nails, heat-tolerant perennial will thrive on dry, sunny slopes and makes a terrific foreground planting to flowering shrubs. Plant it in your difficult to grow spaces and watch it thrive! Details Botanical name: Ceratostigma plumbaginoides

Plumbagos

Ordered 2 dwarf plumbagos. They arrived in great shape. Within a week of planting them they were blooming. Just what this little corner needed!

Not the same as Texas plumbagos

They are not our local plumbagos, but seem fine. We assume they can take cold but can they take our heat in Houston.
