The foliage is incredibly interesting, being green with cream variegation above and rosy-burgundy below, exceeded only by the huge explosion of 8-12" pale pink flower heads in December and January. Like most Clerodendrums, it will sucker readily, but these are easily removed if desired. Though naturally a large shrub or small tree, it can do as well in a container as in the ground if given extra protection from winter cold.
