Clerodendrum paniculatum, The Pagoda Flower is named for the shape of its flowers. This species was first described in 1767 by none other than Carl Linnaes himself (The Father of modern biological nomenclature). This shrub spreads by means of root suckers to create a nice clump of stems, each producing a scarlet pagoda shaped inflorescence. It will flower all summer long and into the fall. As a bonus, Pagoda Flower is an excellent nectar source for butterflies. Keep in mind, even in South Florida, this shrub goes dormant in wintertime. An excellent chance to prune it to 6-12″, so during the growing season it can leaf out and produce its many flowers.
Richard Lyons Nursery currently has this shrub in stock.
