Clerodendrum ugandense 'Blue Butterfly Bush'
The flowers looking like a two tone blue butterfly!
Common Names: Blue Butterfly Bush, Blue Glorybower, Oxford Bush, Cambridge Bush
The flowers looks like a butterfly with two different shades of blue. Use blue butterfly bush as a small stand alone specimen or in a mixed border. Prune back this gangly shrub as needed to keep it in check. Clerodendrums flower on the current season's growth, so you can prune them anytime. Cut back the old wood to a pair of buds to improve flowering. In areas that get frost, you can get the most consistent flowering year in and year out by growing blue butterfly bush in a large pot that can be brought indoors when temperatures approach freezing.
