Butterfly Flower

Clerodendrum ugandense

"Butterfly Flower"


This lovely plant is Clerodendrum ugandense, also known as the Butterfly Flower, a relative of the Glory bower family.  I think it’s absolutely stunning and I love the small light and dark blue ‘butterflies’!

An ‘everbloomer’, this beauty blooms year round.  It likes Full Sun and is hardy to Zone 8 for outdoor plantings (sad because I’m in Zone 7, but it’s also happy living in a container in a sunny window, which works for me).  It grows to 2-4′ so is a lovely size.

Hope you like it and have a great week.

Hugs, Ellen
