Texas Tough Cape Plumbago is considered a Texas Superstar Plant!
Native to South Africa, Cape Plumbago is considered a Texas Superstar plant because it is very well-adapted to our climate. You can prune the dead flower groups to encourage blooming and maintain a desired shape. If you prune too much though, you might shock the plant and sacrifice blooms for a while as the plant recovers. May stay green through the winter if it is mild enough. Does moderately well in pots, but if you want to keep it around, make sure your pot is big enough to accomodate the root system of a mature plant.
