Plumbago auriculata, commonly known as Cape plumbago or blue plumbago, is a flowering shrub native to South Africa. Here is some information about Plumbago auriculata:

  1. Appearance: Plumbago auriculata is an evergreen shrub that can reach a height of about 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters) and a spread of 8 to 10 feet (2.4 to 3 meters). It has slender, arching branches and oval-shaped, glossy green leaves. The flowers are trumpet-shaped and come in clusters. The most common color is light to medium blue, although there are cultivars available with white or pale pink flowers.

  2. Blooming period: Plumbago auriculata produces flowers throughout the year, but the peak blooming season is typically during the warm months, such as spring and summer.

  3. Garden use: This plant is often cultivated as an ornamental shrub in gardens and landscapes. It can be grown as a hedge, in borders, or as a climbing vine when trained on a trellis or support. The attractive blue flowers and glossy foliage make it an appealing choice for adding color to gardens.

  4. Growing conditions: Plumbago auriculata thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-draining soil but can tolerate a range of soil types, including sandy or loamy soil. It is relatively drought-tolerant once established but benefits from regular watering during dry spells.

  5. Care requirements: This shrub is generally low-maintenance. Pruning can be done to maintain its shape or to control its size. Plumbago auriculata is also quite resilient and can handle some frost, but it may suffer damage in colder climates. Providing mulch around the base of the plant can help protect the roots during winter.

Plumbago auriculata is not only valued for its attractive flowers but also for its ability to attract pollinators like butterflies and hummingbirds. It is a popular choice in tropical and subtropical regions for its vibrant blue blooms and versatility in garden settings.
