Today’s Flowers/Flaming Glorybower

Welcome to Today’s Flowers! You can surely tell the clerodendrum species as their stamens seem to reach out to the sky! Blooming on my small vine and in the local public garden that I frequent are the bright red blooms of the Flaming Glorybower/Clerodendrum splendens. Very showy.

Buds waiting to burst open…

This west African native is a semi-woody evergreen vine that climbs by twining. It does well in warm and humid climates and attracts pollinators. The peak flowering season is December/January.

Have a great Sunday!

    Aqui no meu pequeno jardim tenho a Lágrima-de-Cristo (Clerodendrum thomsonae).
    Fiquei muito feliz com a sua visita ao meu jardim, suas ternas palavras me emocionaram… Obrigada pelo carinho!
