I like Blue plumbago because it is a heavy bloomer, drought tolerant, not a nutrient hog, covers ugly chain link and walls in a snap, takes seriously heavy pruning, attracts all sorts of pollinators, and is BLUE. :) Mix with orange bougainvillea for something spectacularly pretty! <3 ~A.
Plumbago auriculata 'Imperial Blue', P. Capensis. Zones 9-11. Grows 2'-3'H (mine is bigger & I have it trained to a trellis.) Drought tolerant perennial with deep sky-blue flowers. Attracts butterflies. Profusion of blooms on my plant. Awesome♥
Embrace the Blues | To create this arrangement, we used billowy hydrangeas, plumbagos, cornflowers, and scabiosas for visual heft. We then filled in with salvias, cinerarias, and 'Techno Heat' lobelias to add texture. The result? A casual centerpiece with a vibrant blue palette that makes for a tranquil focal point.
