Arbor Gate's Picks
of the Month


December 9, 2016 Back to Picks >

This family of plants is ideally suited to Houston’s heat and humidity! Most require some shade but will reward you with beautiful blooms. Featured in our photo(s) is “Musical Notes” Clerodendrum, an Arbor Gate favorite. This small bushy shrub has white flowers that form delicate shapes. In the bud stage these flowers resemble ‘musical notes’ -opening to showy flowers with red stamens. Blooms on and off all year. This perfect landscape plant is easy to grow, blooms in both full sun or shade and tolerates some drought.
