Ceratostigma plumbaginoides (Plumbago, Dwarf)

Plumbago, Dwarf

Ceratostigma plumbaginoides

This dwarf species looks almost nothing like regular Plumbago. The dark green leaves contrast the deep blue flowers that do not form large balls of flowers, but are loosly borne with only a few others at the ends of branches.
Low growing perennial reaching only 15 inches high and wide, however spreads by underground rhizomes to become an attractive groundcover. Only slighly invasive with no serious pest or disease problems.
Will die easily in poorly drained soils or from over-watering, and grows best with full sun in the morning and part shade in the heat of the afternoon.
