1. It was located in the gardens of the Sanssouci Palace, which are very well-cared for, so I am guessing it's been honed for a long time (there's another garden down by Dresden at the Pillnitz Palace that has a Camelia that they've kept alive for 250+ years -- it came as a potted plant, but it's a big tree at this point, and they have a mobile computer-climate-controlled greenhouse on rails that envelopes it every winter -- it's a potted plant older than America :-D).

  2. Growing up with plumbago all around our home, I don't remember them having any smell at all unofortunately. But I will tell you that our chickens loved to eat the blossoms.

  3. I’m in Southern California and these are all over as decoration in suburban neighborhoods. On the side of sidewalks or medians in the road. I see them everywhere in my city.

  4. I had it for 2 years and didn't know it's name until I read replies, I actually hate this plant it it's invasive and a very fast grower, if you touch it the leafs and flowers can get stuck in your clothes and your legs if they're hairy like mine. So annoying.

  5. This plant is bloody ubiquitous where I live in Australia, and it almost always comes in the form of an overgrown and quite unappealing hedge. It's lovely to see it as a sweet standard!

  6. I have had this in north Georgia. It comes in white and blue. Some years it comes back but usually doesn’t. It would be easy to bush. I’ve done it with Lantana before.

  7. In my area (Southern California) plumbago grows into massive, wild mounds. I have never seen a little trained plumbago like this. So cute!
