Clerodendrum are a group of wonderful plants that are becoming very popular in Italy for their beauty not only as plants but also for their incredible blooms. The genus Clerodendrum of the Lamiaceae family includes numerous species of climbing plants originating in Asia and Africa, in tropical and subtropical areas. In view of the fact that it is a genus with more than 400 species, there is a great morphological variety; in fact, we find evergreen plants, others with deciduous leaves, some with shrubby bearing and others with trees. As general characteristics of the plant, it should be noted that the leaves are mostly verticillate or opposite, with smooth or toothed margins and the flowers are mostly gathered in terminal panicle inflorescences with a tubular corolla. The fruit is a drupe. They are plants that can be grown outdoors only in areas with a temperate climate, where temperatures do not drop below 13 ° C (with some rare exceptions).

Cultivation and Care Plant Clerodendrum Speciosum:

The only problem for Clerodendrum plants is the minimal temperatures. In fact, they can safely go up to 30 ° C without creating damage to the plant but the winter ones must not fall below 5-16 ° C. An important aspect in the cultivation of this plant is the fact that during the autumn-winter period it enters vegetative rest and not in a figurative sense, therefore all activities must be suspended or in any case significantly reduced. They are plants that need a lot of light but not direct sun. They are plants that love the air therefore ensure a good change. During the whole period of growth (spring - summer) ensure abundant watering in the Clerodendrum taking care not to leave tinned water in the saucer as water stagnation is not tolerated. Starting from autumn (October - mid November) the watering for the evergreen species is reduced while for the deciduous ones they must be almost completely suspended.

Use a mixture consisting of fertile soil, peat and leaf earth in equal parts to which a little coarse sand must be added which favors drainage as they are not tolerant plants against water stagnation.
