Re: Florida blue flowering shrub


Plumbago is pretty hardy. I have it here in zone 5b, so it should work for you.

Plumbago has been frequently available here in recent years and of course
used as an annual. I finally picked one up this year, but I'd like to try
to overwinter it.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] Florida blue flowering shrub


I agree with everyone else. Probably Plumbago auriculata. Common name:
leadwort. Varieties come in shades from bright blue to white.  The
bright blue ones, however, are the most attractive; the lighter and
whiter ones tend to look washed out, methinks.

Hey, you guys from FL.  We are in Orlando, and I would like to
identyfy the
blue flowering vine/shrub that looks like is getting planted all over
the
place and resembles Bougainvilla  in habit and growth, but doesn't
seem to
have thorns is.   I have always loved blue flowers.  The flowers look
like
phlox.  I don't expect it would be hardy in Virginia, but you never
know what
they're working on.  Thanks for any info., Verona
