Plumbago is an extremely reliable, resilient plant which has been popular for home gardens as well as for commercial landscapes for many years. Plumbago may be found in gardens all over the world. The leaves are thin in texture and have minute gland dots. The leaf stalk is winged at the base, and clasps the stem. In summer the bush is covered with pretty trusses of flowers, although there are often flowers at other times of the year. It is very useful in large gardens and landscapes as it forms suckers and will cover fairly big areas. It is fast growing, drought resistant and rewarding and will grow in any soil but will perform best if planted with plenty of compost.
