Clerodendrum trichotomum var. fargesii


Don't be fooled by its unfamilier, tropical-looking exterior. This award-winning specimen is hardy down to minus 10 degrees. In spring its fresh veil of heart-shaped leaves provide the perfect backdrop to its highly fragrant star-shaped blossom and the most curious looking seasonal berries, which last from July to November.

Ideal autumn shrub for this is when all of its attractive characteristics come to the forefront. Its best enjoyed as a specimen shrub in a border where it can add late season interest. Its blooms are highly fragrant and its calyces transform to cerise with turquoise centres which darken with age. Very unusal and not often seen.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
