Re: C. trichotomum

No, Marge, mine is in the ground too.  It is about 10-15 ft. tall.  I keep it 
as a tree, but cut back the branches in late winter to keep it compact.  I 
have three of the 5 Clerodendron species in the ground.  The C. trichotomum 
seems to be the worst at suckering, the C. ugandense and the C. speciosissium 
don't sucker at all, at least they haven't yet in the few years they've been 
in the ground.  I have heard that the C. bungei is the worst at suckering, so 
definitely have kept it in a pot.
