Clerodendrum thomsoniae

 

Bleeding Heart Vine

Clerodendrum thomsoniae is an evergreen growing to 4m tall, with ovate to oblong leaves. The red flowers with pure white calyces are produced in clusters of 20 or so, each flower having prominent stamens. It needs very good light, but shade from hot sun to thrive in the garden. It is commonly grown as a houseplant, particularly in temperate climates with a risk of frost in the Autumn and Winter.
