Design Ideas: A shrubby climber is the perfect plant for the back of mixed borders, particularly along fence lines where it may be trained up and over. Perhaps one of the best plants to sprawl as erosion control on banks and slopes needing soil coverage with evergreen foliage year around. With slight trimming this makes an elegant foundation plant that cloaks ugly footings and utilities. Adaptation to partial shade is a good opportunity for planting under spreading canopies of old trees on boulevard or backyard. Superior filler for tropical gardens and around pool areas where light green foliage is bright and lush.

Prefers light, well-drained, slightly acidic soils, but highly adaptable. Space 3 to 5 ft. apart for best effect. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.

History

Although roots have been used medicinally in some cultures, plumbago's general toxicity has kept it out of the ethnobotanical references.
