The First of Many!

The First of Many! (Clerodendrum ugandense (Blue glory bower))

Every year I play a game with my Clerodendrum ugandense. I leave it out until it has taken a couple of frosts and then bring it indoors. The frost killed foliage withers and falls off and then the whole shrub starts to put out new growth. A few weeks later it is in bloom. In a week it will be spectacular!

Thanks guys!

Do they struggle in the dry weather in San Diego Delonix?

They seem to tolerate pretty dry conditions well. However, with this being said: I'll have to see how they look after this potentially record dry spell. It's predicted we will have no rainfall this January in San Diego. This will be the first time this has happened since 1976 , during the severe California drought of 1976 - 1978. I remember the extremely strict water-rationing we went through at that time in the San Francisco Bay Area.

And the colour remains true even in the low light levels that it's getting at the moment.
