Notes:

This plant starts blooming in Spring and is all around my back fence line. We live nextdoor to a nursery that has been closed many years. I can say that it came from there as I have never noticed one on the other side. My husband tried killing it in the begining but what ever he did never worked. I don’t mind it as it is very pretty. The 3 photos depict the begining, middle, and end of the bloom. The lead is heart shaped and dark green. I do not detect a pleasant smell of any kind.

    I didn’t recognize the proper name for this plant, but do know it as Glory Bower. I have had it in my garden for many years…..shared from a dear neighbor. It is a beautiful flower. The smell of the plant can be not pleasant if you are handling it….It’s a nice plant….likes water. Mine probably could use more sun…my garden has become quite shaded over the past couple years. Lovely plant. Thank you for posting.

    Thank you, stone for answering my question and supplying me with all this information. I am glad to know this and I may take some action in confining my Clerodendrom. I have not been lucky in growing verbena in my front flower bed as I think it is beautiful. I certainly have this related plant in abundance in the back. I would have never thought it to be connected.
