Flower of the Day – April 3 – White Plumbago

One of my plumbago plants was defying the total lack of rain recently (we’ve had 2.5mm – 1/10th of an inch here since Jan 9!) and putting on a huge display of the purest white blossom bunches so i thought i’d share a shot of it with all of you. 🙂

  1. I so agree! 😉 You might like to see my blue ones? https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/1822465/posts/13781

    Plumbago is a real ‘Beauty and the Beast’ plant: the flowers are so incredibly delicate and full of natural beauty, yet have survived without any water for nearly 3 months now, while rose leaves have been burned to a crisp by the Summer/Autumn sun. When the flowers drop they become sticky seed bearing stalks that break off and cling like velcro to hair, clothing and shoes and gloves. The plant grows out of control (with long stems that seem to be made of steel rods) if you don’t prune it harshly and it sends underground tendrils that shoot up invading the surrounding ground/flowerbeds. Trying to pull even a ‘tiny’ shoot out of the ground needs a backhoe!

    But it certainly makes for a beautiful picture, huh? 😉
