Rose glory bower Pink Diamond
Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond
The Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond or Rose glory bower Pink Diamond is a small deciduous and suckering shrub. It is distinguished by its variegated dark green and cream foliage, its very fragrant flowering at the end of summer and its compact habit. It is an easy plant to grow in pots or in the ground in temperate regions.
The foliage of Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond is one of its main attractions. Its leaves are opposite, oval, 15 to 20 cm long, and have a wide creamy white margin which contrasts with the dark green of the blade with well-marked veins. They are purple when they appear. They fall in autumn after having taken on yellow and red hues.
The flowering of the Rose glory bower Pink Diamond is spectacular and occurs on the year's wood, at the end of summer, when most other shrubs have finished flowering. It is composed of globose terminal panicles 12 to 13 cm in diameter, formed of numerous tubular flowers with long stamens. The flowers are a bright dark pink and emit a powerful scent that attracts pollinating insects. They are followed by fleshy blue-green berries, which persist for a long time on the shrub.
Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond has a bushy, rounded habit. It reaches approximately 1.20 m in height and 1 m in spread at maturity. It spreads quickly by suckers and can become invasive if we do not control its releases. It is not very hardy and tolerates temperatures down to -9°C, it fears late frosts which can damage its flower buds.
Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond is best grown in pots, given its low hardiness and invasive nature. You must choose a fairly wide and deep container, filled with a mixture of potting soil and loam on a bed of argex balls or any other draining materials. Water regularly during the vegetation period, letting the substrate dry slightly between two waterings, add a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants every 15 days during flowering. It should be pruned lightly at the end of winter to maintain its shape and remove unwanted suckers. It must be brought inside, protected from frost in winter, in a bright, cool room.
Rose glory bower Pink Diamond can also be planted in the ground in regions with a mild climate or in a place protected from wind and frost. Choose a sunny or partial shade location, in cool, rich and well-drained soil. It must be mulched in summer to conserve soil moisture and protect it from the cold in winter with thick mulch and a winter cover.
Clerodendrum bungei Pink Diamond is a very decorative shrub. It can be used alone or in groups, in a clump or a free hedge. It can also go well with other plants with variegated foliage or late flowering. It can also look great on a terrace or balcony, in a large pot or planter.
