In the fall the foliage turns dark red.Attracts butterflies. Deer resistant. Good for erosion control. The plant blooms through and beyond light frosts. Frosts only add to its interest in the garden by inducing a rich red fall leaf color.

Plumbago is very shade tolerant, blooming in spots that receive only a couple hours of sunlight daily. It also thrives in full sun. Plants prosper in average soils and require only occasional watering once established.
