** Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 2022 Bank Holiday - Mail Order Deliveries **

We will do our best to get any existing orders sent this coming week (commencing 23rd MAY).  Orders received after 20th May could be subject to delay as our courier is expecting the following week (commencing 6th June) to be very busy.

If your order is urgent please let us know and we will see what we can do.

Clerodendrum myricoides 'Ugandense'

Common Name: Blue Glory Bower, Butterfly Bush
Plant Family: Verbenaceae
Plant Type: Tender Shrub

Buy 6 or more Tender and half-hardy plants online and get 20% off


A tender evergreen climber with beautiful pale and dark blue flowers, which resemble a butterfly in shape, from summer to autumn. An ideal plant for a Butterfly house, especially good for East African species as this plant is native to Uganda. Even small plants will have a profusion of flowers so size can be restricted by growing in a pot. Grow in loam based compost. Position in full sun but provide some shade in a very hot Conservatory. This plant can be placed outside for the summer in the UK but it is not frost hardy.
