Clerodendrum thomsoniae - Bleeding Heart Clerodendrum


Clerodendrum thomsoniae - Bleeding Heart Clerodendrum (Clerodendrum thomsoniae - Bleeding Heart Clerodendrum)

This is one of my favorite vining shrubs. It blooms for a long, long time and is pretty tough here. It's native to tropical West Africa. Photo taken August 12, 2010 at the Marsten House in Balboa Park, San Diego, CA.

These are pretty widely available here as house plants and I keep picking them up and putting them down. Maybe next time.

I do already have a Clerodendrum Camillia - C. Ugandense. It's one of my favourite plants and I couldn't resist posting another photo of it today.

Camillia:

C. thomsoniae grows very quickly...like most Clerodendrum. I'm sure it thrives in your tropical climate.

Meanie:

LOL!!! That's great! I think you're going to be pleased with how well C. thomsoniae grows and blooms over a long period of time.

I'm looking forward to it next year already.

Meanie:

It doesn't have flowers on it yet?

I guess I'm so used them being sold here in big containers for the yard already with hundreds of flowers on them. : > )

I will check it our right now.

Just a few flowers. I potted it on as it was severely pot bound. The nursery have clearly been cutting the tips out to keep it compact. But as it was reduced to three quid I couldn't pass up on one again!

Meanie:

Sounds like you got a great deal on your plant.

Your plant should bloom for a long time.

23 Aug, 2010

 

Hopefully it'll be as rapid growing as my C.Ugandense Delonix.

Meanie:

I've never grown a Clerodendrum that hasn't been fast growing yet. : > )
