Blue Cape Plumbago

Blue Cape Plumbago
Plumbago auriculata
(plum-BAY-go) (aw-rik-yoo-LAY-tuh)
Synonym: Cape Leadwort

This plant always shows up here in the winter. They are quite often used for containers and grown as annuals around here. One of my favorite flower colors just the right shade of blue. It is recommended, due to variations, that you buy them in flower. The plant and flowers are graceful looking and can tolerate shearing.

Well it’s relatively warm out again and the weather roller coaster seems to running again full force. The broad leaf evergreens seem to be loving it.
