Ceratostigma plumbaginoides

Plumbago is an interesting herbaceous perennial groundcover that spreads low and aggressively.  Given ideal conditions, it will form a mat and take on a beautiful bronze-red color in the fall.  It likes well-drained, slightly dry soil and is a fantastic addition to a ‘thrill, fill and spill’ container, just keep it out of full shade.  Plumbago blooms from July to September and works well interplanted with spring blubs.  Good for rock gardens, too.
