Description Plant Care
Ceratostigma plumbaginoides 'Leadwort' (Leadwort, Creeping Plumbago). Brilliant gentian-blue flowers from late summer until the first hard frost. Spreads to form a dense mat of zig zag stems with leatherly, oval leaves. Deep red stems and semi-evergreen foliage, changing to burgundy-red in fall. Its low, creeping habit makes it charming in both shrub and perennial borders. Excellent choice for bulb overplanting. Many report that it is hardy even into Zone 5, if mulched lightly. Prefers fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade, especially in the South. Tolerant of poor soil. A great groundcover with multi-seasonal interest. Attracts butterflies!
Special Characteristics:
