Bleeding Heart Vine, June 2, 2017

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, May 31, 2017
Clerodendrum, Bleeding Heart Vine, is a tropical plant native to Africa. Since our Winters are too cold for it, I grow it in a pot and take it indoors each Autumn.

Happy Friday!

  2. I grew this plant in my garden for several years, but then one winter we actually had WINTER and that was the end of that!

  5. That's a beauty! Does it go dormant during the winter, or does it keep growing/blooming? Does it like shade or sun?

    1. Thanks for your comment and question on the Bleeding Heart Vine. Here in north Mississippi, zone 7, I give it morning sun and afternoon shade. Even our mild Winters are too cold for it, so it comes into the house before the first frost. I keep it watered and it stays green, but does not grow or bloom until it goes back outside in the late Spring. I have had it for years, and the stems are only about 3 feet long. I imagine in the tropics it would grow to be much taller, longer.
