Eranthemum pulchellum - Blue Eranthemum, Tropical Blue Sage (Eranthemum pulchellum - Blue Eranthemum, Tropical Blue Sage)

My tropical blue sage is starting to bloom. This very tropical, native of south India grows very well in San Diego, CA. Photo taken Jan. 9, 2012.

I love it, too! I had been wanting one for a long time. They're usually available at the nurseries during summer and fall and winter (as it's a winter-bloomer). I purchased this one at my friend's nursery, Kartuz Greenhouses about 3 months ago.

I would guess it makes a good indoor plant, also. However, I would never grow this plant indoors because it would be infested with bugs very quickly, here in San Diego.

We've just watched the film "Traffic" - do you know it? I was wondering how much of the San Diego scenes were actually shot there?

14 Jan, 2012

 

Meanie:

Yes, I think I saw it many years ago. I believe some scenes were filmed in La Jolla.

14 Jan, 2012

 

Thanks - I always wonder about locations in films.

14 Jan, 2012

 

You're welcome. I think most of places in the movie were filmed up in the Hollywood area of Los Angeles.

La Jolla is a beautiful area where many movie stars hang out. This is probably why it was filmed there.
