Plumbago auriculata

  • Plumbagos are choice shrubs for banks, backgrounds, and patio containers.
  • Plumbago plants are deer resistant, tolerate extreme heat, and need little water.

Plumbagos produce large clusters of shining, 1.5 inch azure-blue flowers over a long spring, summer and fall season. They grow to 4-6 feet or more tall when grown as a perennial (zones 9-10). Plumbago plants can be grown as annuals everywhere. They grow into 2 foot tall flowering shrubs the first year.

'Escapade Blue Improved' Plumbago is an excellent plant for patio containers, banks, and backgrounds. It can be tied to a trellis and grown as a vine. 'Escapade Blue Improved' is more compact and better branching than cutting grown plumbago plants. It has a higher germination rate and darker flower color compared to other seed grown plumbagos.
