Product Description

Plumbago has the most spectacular sky blue garden phlox shaped flowers on a shrub with arching stems. Plumbago is nearly always in flower. We always know when someone has worked with them in the greenhouse because the old blossoms are somewhat sticky and will stick to clothing. Unfortunately, I have to tell people almost daily the Plumbago isn’t hardy for us in New Hampshire. It is still a very worthwhile plant to grow as a container plant for the deck and taken indoors to a sunny window for the winter. You can prune Plumbago back hard or to shape. Provide full sun and allow to dry slightly between waterings. Sold in a 4.5″ Pot 1.37 Pt. (648 ml.).
