01/09/19 - one of my favourite tropical plants, Plumbago, and one I wish I could grow at home. Love the pale blue colours 💙😍 #plumbago #plumbago-auriculata #plumbagoauriculata #capeleadwort #holidayfind #notmygarden #greece 🇬🇷

Thanks Sue! Given how hot it is here it’s a wonder how there is so much in flower @lilybee

Oh that’s interesting Deborah, lucky you! 😊👍🏼 I’ve only ever seen the Hardy Plumbago #ceratostigma grown outdoors in the U.K., not this one - only in glasshouses or conservatories 😔 @jerseylily

Not many pale blue flowers around, so it’s nice to see them on this one Suzie 😊 @jadojado29

If I had a heated greenhouse or conservatory I’d give it a go, but I’ve neither 😔 - just have to enjoy them while I’m here! 😍 @rachelbrooks

Oh lovely John, is it Ceratostigma, or the more tender Plumbago? I don’t think I could grow one in my house as I’ve only a couple of sunny windows, very envious of you John! I look forward to seeing the photos 👍🏼 @johninbrighton
