Fl. Zone 10a 🌱 I’m not a pro by any means, just a mom with a hobby. Succulents, veggies, and flowers are my current projects.

9/4/18 my #blueplumbago is one of the others I have to leave behind when I move. I’m so sad #plumbago #blue

Can you take cuttings of this and try to root them in water?

I could yes! I’m just not a cutting person. I don’t seem to get them to root ever and I just would rather not. I’ll maybe get a new plant, but it also depends on the layout of the new place! I will for sure have more jasmine just unsure about this!

8/8/18 trimmed #plumbago a couple weeks ago and I should have expected this to turn into a crazy growth spurt of blue and green #blueplumbago

Once, this trellis stood up straight. Between a six year old playing hide and seek behind it, and a stubborn plant, it won’t stop bending. I’ve had a couple people say I shouldn’t have it on a trellis, but I couldn’t get it to grow UP any other way. It’s a very small space. Once the flowers die it will just need a trim in the back. #plumbago #blue #blueflowers #blueplumbago

A gorgeous flower head on my #plumbago . I love how this type of flower blooms almost cylindrically. One of my few flowering plants with unique flowers in my opinion! #blue-plumbago #flowers #flowering #flowerhead #blue

Getting to be about five feet tall! Have since trimmed it little. All the flowers bloomed, so I removed all the dead heads #plumbago #blue-plumbago
