You are purchasing either 2 well rooted plants that are 18" - 24" high, or you have the option to buy 8 smaller plants (8"-10" tall) for $10 additional - a big savings. And these plants grow very quickly. (check the drop down box near the order button above to select the size you want.)
Mexican Hydrangea, Mexicali Rose, Cashmere Bouquet are just a few names given to (Clerodendrum bungei) a beautiful and fast growing 3 to 5 foot tall shrub with great foliage and wonderful 4" to 6" wide flowers. Growing zones are 8 to 11 - they will be killed by frost but will rapidly grow back once the weather warms and will bloom by late spring and continue throughout the summer.
A very easy maintenance-free plant that requires very little water once established. Prefers full or partial shade but can take full sun with more water. These plants multiply by sending out underground runners so be sure to plant them in an area where the runners can be controlled (mowed down or dug up), in a woodland area to add interest and color under the canopy or in a large flower bed. I have not found them difficult to control and their large globes of pink/purple flowers are well worth it!
These will be shipped bareroot to save on shipping I also trim ALL of the large leaves off the plants for shipping these will re-bud once the plant is established in it's new home but keeps these leaves from draining nutrients from the root system. What you will get will look like a twig with some roots on it. Don't be discouraged by this initial look! Once they are planted and start growing, they will fill out and grow quickly under proper conditions (warm, damp but not too wet).
