Plant Species of the genus Clerodendrum

Information about this genus
Name: Clerodendrum
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: Clerodendrum species prefer light to medium well-drained soils which are rich in humus, in a protected partly shaded to sunny position. Water freely in the growing season. The stems of young plants may require support, and sucking insects such as mites, mealybugs or whitefly can pose a problem. Propagation is from seed sown in spring or from cuttings of half-hardened wood taken during winter or summer.
Description: A genus of about 400 evergreen or deciduous small trees, vigorous shrubs and climbers found mostly in tropical and subtropical regions of Asia and Africa. Their simple leaves are opposite or whorled, and they are grown for the showy violet or red flowers which appear in terminal panicles in summer. Some members of the genus have long been valued in traditional medicine. Others make ideal container plants while the climbing species are ideal for trellis cultivation. The fruit is a drupe or berry.
