Clerodendrum trichotomum

Description: Clerodendron trichotomum, known as the Glorytree or Peanut Butter Tree is a deciduous small tree. Large textured leaves have a pointed tip and smell strongly of peanut butter when they're rubbed. Flower bunches appear from August, loose, open and consist of small white flowers that have a pleasant fragrance and a strikingly dark red centre. These then give way to turquoise-blue berries that contrast with the fiery autumn foliage.

Clerodendrum Growing Tips: Grow in humus-rich moist soil in a sheltered position in sun or partial shade
