I was pleased with how it turned out Caroline..and admit to enjoying my tea break there very much... it was a few years ago now and the owners of the garden have moved now ,so I hope the new ones can still enjoy it @cassie26

Oh yes, that's very nice 👌🏼 - I just reminded myself of it from your other pic showing the berries although I would never have remembered the name 😂

#flashbackfriday my Clerodendrum last summer really looking forward to seeing it coming into leaf as it's shape and form is every bit as beautiful as the flowers/ berries later on 💕

No Sam @sambucussam it's a shrub / small tree it grows into a beautiful shape but worth being aware the berries are very toxic so I keep mine out front where my little Stanley dog can't help himself as he is apt to do 🐶

I've just looked it up and it looks like it's too big for my garden unless it's the small one. 🤔🤔. @icedance

A garden I used to work in had a mature one at only 5ft high @pelly width can be controlled. Keeping mine in a pot for a few years , I know you have a beautiful little person 😊👶so advise caution re the berries

Thanks for being so thoughtful Sam. If I got one it would be at the back of my deepest border out of harm's way. I have several contenders for this particular space though and have yet to make up my mind which wins. 😊😊😊. @icedance

It's a nice quandary to have Jane @pelly who are the other contenders ?
