Clerodendrum trichotomum var. fargesii, The Harlequin Glorybower

Clerodendrum trichotomum var. fargesii

In the herbaceous border large spaces remain where the tender plants once stood and the trees are losing their leaves but, as the annual and perennial flowers start to fade, there is a shrub that is putting on quite a show, Clerodendrum trichotomum var. fargesii, the Harlequin Glorybower.

White Starry Fragrant Flowers

Covered in numerous metallic blue berries, each one surrounded by star shaped maroon calyces, this large shrub's colourful display catches your eye as you walk past. White starry fragrant flowers have yet to open so more berries are still to come, a wonderful late autumn display.
