Meet . . . Ceratostigma!

Ceratostigma plumbaginoides is the toungue twisting Latin name of Plumbago. This hardy groundcover has stunning blue flowers from August through September, and beyond! The late season blooms are accompanied by brilliant ornage-red foliage for a superior fall color display. Plumbago grows 8"-10" tall and will slowly spread. It's adaptable to most soil types, moderate to dry watering conditions (though not a good choice for super-hot locations), and full sun to shade. What more could you ask for?
