Plumbago auriculata, commonly called cape leadwort or cape plumbago, Native to South Africa. It is a weak-stemmed perennial evergreen shrub that grows 6-7’ tall and 8-10’ wide in its native habitat. Features clusters (terminal racemes) of pale blue phlox-like flowers that bloom freely throughout the growing season. Flowers are followed by barbed fruit capsules. Oblong to oblanceolate green leaves (to 3” long) have ear-shaped bases, hence the species name. Commonly grown in the tropics or subtropics as a low hedge, ground cover or on fences. In temperate regions grow in pots/containers for patios, decks or other sunny areas around the home or sink to the rim in garden areas. Houseplant.
