Weeping, Arching Branches and Blue-Purple Blooms

Why Dark Blue Plumbagos?
It’s like a mini willow, with its long and arching branches and weeping mound effect – and the Dark Blue Plumbago is made even more stunning by its blueish-purple blooms that emerge in mid-summer to early fall. Plus, this Plumbago can grow in a container or even be trained onto a trellis or archway, making the Dark Blue extra versatile.

And its flower clusters are especially eye-catching since they have five-petaled silhouettes. These blooms are a favorite for butterflies and hummingbirds while being deer resistant – this means you get a dazzling wildlife show without any hassle, especially since it’s drought tolerant too.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: It’s highly adaptable and versatile, but the Dark Blue Plumbago does need an area with well-drained soil and 4 to 8 hours of sunlight per day. Once you’ve found your location, dig a hole that’s about one to two times the width of your plant’s root ball. If you’re planting in a container, select one that is about one and a half times the width of your plant. After digging, place your plant, back fill your soil and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Depending on the rainfall in your area, your newly planted Plumbago should be watered once or twice weekly. After the plant is established, water once every week or once every two weeks. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 to 3 inches down – if it’s dry, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply an all-purpose fertilizer to your Plumbago once in the springtime and then again in the summer while it’s growing.

4. Pruning: The Dark Blue Plumbago doesn’t require pruning, but you may prune for your desired shape.

Delighted!

I live in zone 6b and ordered two of these as annual thrillers for two large pots. I saw these at Wilderness Lodge in Disney and fell in love with them. Arrived quickly, very fresh and surprisingly large. Can’t wait to see how they do and will post again!
