When we moved to our new home in Essex we inherited lots of lovely plants especially roses. I love gardening and nature.

Ceratostigma plumbaginoides syn. plumbago larpentiae

That is so pretty! I’ve been tempted many times to try one here but it’s rated for zone 5 and we’re a zone 3/4. I do have a couple of zone 5 plants that have survived our winters so I’m still tempted to try it! How big is this plant after 5 yrs growth?

@gjones it is about 2 and a half foot high and about 3 foot wide - it dies back in the winter but back it comes in the Spring/Summer
