Re: Clerodendron

I love the one you have, Noreen. Unfortunately, it would have to be a house plant here, and I have too many of them right now.

I think 99% of all of the C.'s are invasive as far as suckering. The only
one I've had that doesn't seem to be is the Clerodendron "blue
butterfly"....forgot the species name. I've never tried to grow any by seed either, since
digging the suckers is much easier.

I don't have C. trichotomum. I have C. quadriloculare [I think that's
right]--and it is definitely a pest. Planted it 8 years ago--beautiful
purple leaves and star-burst flower heads--and I've been killing
suckers for the last 7 years. One of these days I'm going to introduce
it to Brush-Be-Gone and be gone it.
