Clerodendrum incisum (‘Musical Notes’)

Life: Perennial

Size: 3-4' tall, 4-5' wide

Light: Full to Partial Sun, Bright Indoor Light

Water: Average to Moist, Well Drained

Soil: Fertile

While the open flowers are beautiful and dainty, it is the unopened buds which have given this plant its common name; they resemble small, upside-down musical notes atop the stems. It will bloom from late spring until cold weather, and should never be pruned during this time as this will sacrifice flowers. Like many Clerodendrums, it has long, delicate stamens that will extend 1½" past the petals. Root hardy into the upper 20s, they can be grown in the ground or in containers, both outside and in.
