Lobostemon fruticosus

Lobostemon fruticosus Lobostemon fruticosus

This rare, South African shrub bloomed May thru July for us - and truly lovely it was. Lots of ethereal blue-blushed-with-pink, 1”, trumpet shaped flowers are gracefully held in clusters all around the nicely shaped bush. Evergreen, smallish, dark blue-gray foliage. It likes full sun to part sun, is hardy to 20 degrees and needs no summer water once established. I think it makes an exciting new addition to Bay Area or coastal gardens! To 5’ tall and 4’ spread.
