Clerodendrum trichotomum, also known as Harlequin Glorybower or Peanut Butter Tree, is a species of flowering plant in the Lamiaceae family. Native to China, Japan, and Korea, it is cultivated for its ornamental value.

Here are some key features:

Appearance: The plant is notable for its clusters of fragrant white flowers that bloom in late summer to early autumn. These flowers are surrounded by pink to red calyces, giving the plant an attractive appearance. The foliage is also noteworthy, with ovate, serrated leaves that are green on top and purple underneath.

Fruit: After flowering, the plant produces small, bright blue berries that resemble peanuts, hence the common name "Peanut Butter Tree." These berries are ornamental but should not be ingested as they are toxic.

Fragrance: The flowers emit a pleasant fragrance, which adds to the plant's appeal in gardens.

Growing Conditions: Clerodendrum trichotomum prefers moist, well-drained soil and partial shade to full sun. It can tolerate a range of soil types and is relatively low-maintenance once established.

Cultural Significance: In addition to its ornamental value, Clerodendrum trichotomum holds cultural significance in some regions. In Japan, it is known as "Mukojima-abura," and its flowers are celebrated in poetry and artwork.
