Clerodendrum bungei

Clerodendrum can be deciduous or evergreen shrubs, trees or climbers, with simple leaves, sometimes having an unpleasant scent, and clusters of usually fragrant salver-shaped flowers that have prominent stamens, which are followed by small berries. Clerodendrum bungei is a suckering deciduous shrub with large oval leaves that have an unpleasant scent, and which are sometimes flushed purple when newly emerged, and has rounded clusters of small, sweetly fragrant pink flowers in late Summer and Autumn


Flowering Season

From Mid Summer TO Mid Autumn

This large shrub offers a late-summer display of jasmine-like white flowers encased in red tepals and scent. Bright blue berries in autumn are accented by conspicuous bright, pinkish-red calyxes.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

For best bloom and berries, plant in full sun in rich, well-drained, loamy soil. Site plants in areas that receive frequent mowing as they tend to sucker.

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in late Summer. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
