The hardy Plumbago is a low spreading, woody perennial, covered in bright green leaves, which turn spectacular red shades in autumn before they fall. The plant is mainly grown however for its vivid blue flowers which form in small clusters from late summer to mid-autumn. A superb plant for adding late colour to the front of the border, it will become drought tolerant once established. Organically grown in peat free compost. Pot size 1.5 litre. Hardiness zone H6.

In mid-spring cut back the flowered shoots to within 2.5cm (1in) of the old growth. After pruning apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant. Often late to re-appear in spring. Propagate by softwood or semi-hardwood cuttings.
