Clerodendrum paniculatum ‘Borneo Sunset’

10.00

Bronze Pagoda Plant

This is a large tropical suckering perennial with bold reddish bronze foliage. The flower is light red-orange in color in a terminal inflorescence shaped like a large flattened cone. Absolutely stunning in bloom, the color contrast is beautiful.  Full sun or part sun in hotter, drier areas. Very easy to grow, evergreen in frost free climates. May die to the ground with a frost, but will come back from the root if the winter is mild, mulching the roots may help. Blooms year round in a warm climate, summer blooming in temperate climates. The flower is a shaped a little more like C. speciosissimum and my guess is that this may be a hybrid. Gets about 3' - 4' tall, maybe more in the tropics with time. Well worth it to grow as an annual in colder climates. Could easily be overwintered in a pot kept above freezing.
